Unexpected surprise of the Exposure Program (PAS) of the V3...

So... with the kit lens I was seeing often 1/30th exposure times in Aperture priority mode which made me a bit nervous.  Well, with the F1.8 I am seeing 1/60-1/125 - basically Nikon biased the program two ways:

- try to not have blur at certain focal lengths (good and what I thought was missing from the kit lens)

- try not to go past ISO 1600 if possible to keep IQ high.

It's an interesting choice and a welcome surprise because with the F1.8 I am seeing a faster shutter than 1/30th.
