yes - A mode isn't strange at all

That was my experience running my tests today:
I set the NEX7 in Aperture Priority mode, manually set an aperture on a Canon FD lens, then as I moved the lens around in and out of different sources of light I could see the shutter speed changing in the viewfinder...which prompted my post.

I use A mode 99% of the time with my legacy and emount lenses. Auto-shutter speed is fast and accurate.
