Lock focus AND exposure for multiple shots

Just wondering if there is a way I can improve my workflow of shooting, in this case, panoramas.

I am normally shooting in Av mode so I may grab a few different compositions, then decide to do a panorama. I'll scan the scene for appropriate exposure, flip to M and set it, and also switch my lens to MF.

Is there a way I could lock both the focus and exposure, across multiple shots? Or at least make it faster to set the exposure? Sometimes my last M settings will be way off (often long exposure)

Further more, if I wanted to grab multiple exposures (through automated exposure bracketing), could the above solution (assuming there is one) still work?
