GX8 Auto ISO limited to 3200?

Hi - I've just switched from a Canon 40D to a GX8. Love the camera and the lenses (7-14mm F4, 12-35mm F2.8 and 25m F1.7) but I'm having trouble with the Auto ISO. I realise Panasonic's implementation of Auto ISO is generally poor, but I cannot get my GX8 to select an ISO of above 3200, no matter how little light there is. It seems perfectly happy to have a 2 second shutter speed rather than use a higher ISO than 3200. Is this normal? I'm using it Aperture Priority mode, I have expanded ISO range switched on and I have also tried iAuto ISO mode, which behaves the same way.

Am I doing something wrong or is this just the way it is?

Thanks in advance.
