Can we please have Exposure Compensation function in M-mode with Auto-ISO? It's not too much to ask is it since we already have M-mode Auto-ISO?

So when you compensate the exposure in Manual do you want it to adjust the aperture or shutter?

Neither.  Aperture and Shutter are fixed, Auto ISO adjusts accordingly for exposure.

Why not just adjust it one stop yourself instead of using exposure compensation? I really don't see the benefit in manual (that's why they call it manual). What benefit do you expect?

It's just another Semi-auto mode like Av mode and Tv mode.  In M+Auto-ISO mode though, both Aperture and Shutter are fixed, and the ISO floats.  Pentax make it more logical by putting TAv mode on the dial.

Many have discovered the usefulness of Canon's M+Auto ISO function but then are frustrated by the lack of EC to offset the exposure for certain scenes.
