In my humble experience, 1/f is ok for 35mm format but lower is ok for medium format and higher is necessary for APS (more like 1/2f).

Auto ISO parameters can be changed, manual is dead easy to drop into. The X-T1 needs a bit more forethought than previous X cameras owing to the ISO dial - different Auto ISO presets are not an option although I'm sure that they could be re-implemented as a programmable option for use when the dial is in the A position.

I have to say that I've never been caught out by the current methods and that an automatic 1/f would take me back to early X-E1 days (it used to have this), i.e. a bit of a pain because it's too slow.

The rule 1/f applies for 35mm format (f must be converted if the sensor has another format).

This is the way it works on most cameras who have this mode with non OIS lenses.

As far as I remember, it was the case for x-e1. It was fine for me.
