Lets pressure Panasonic to put auto ISO in manual mode in GX7 and GM1
32

I almost forgot about this but I am not happy that Panasonic decided to not include auto ISO with the new GX7 and GM1 in manual mode. When I asked a rep at the recent Photo Expo in NY he said it was a conscious decision because the engineers feel as he said "manual is manual" and that wouldn't be total manual control of exposure. He said it's a Japanese thing which is bull since I know for a fact my Nikon D4 does it and I use it all the time. A lot of photographers joined in the argument and all agreed with me. The rep said to call Panasonic and first ask if you can do it and when they say no ask if its a feature that can be added to a firmware update.
