This is not the first time I complain about it in some replies. The way it behaves by ignoring the 1/focale rule to set the shutter speed is a huge problem in my case.

The 1/focale rule was fine for me. I often switch lenses, use zooms and now I have to always keep an eye on the minimum shutter speed.

I admit that I am really surprised that this issue is not often mentioned.


or 3 fixes. An expert camera should have these issues fixed.

I can not call myself an expert , but i have owned several cameras since ...

I want to use fixed ISO so that i can expect some fixed image quality. Why and when are you using auto ISO ? Is it some special genre or something ?

SLR photography started in 1968, Canon DSLR cameras, lenses and now also a Fuji X-E1
60.21 N 24.86 E

I could ask the opposite question. Why do you fix ISO ??  But anyway, I don't want to start another debate between ISO shooters and auto iso shooters,  Yes, I mainly use auto iso except for some very specific cases.
