I like to set ISO to auto, and adjust SS and aperture manually. However, regardless of whether in bright sunlight with lower shutter speed and wide open aperture, the camera wants to take the shot at the maximum ISO setting (6400 in my case).

My auto ISO settings are as follows.

Default sensitivity: 200

MAX sensitivity: 6400

Min shutter speed: 1/60

I prefer the lowest ISO appropriate for the lighting conditions. Should be near 200 when outdoors in a bright environment.

Is there a setting I'm overlooking? What am I doing wrong?

What immediately comes to mind is ISO being able to be set with the front dial. In my current config, anyway, pressing the front dial toggles control between shutter speed and ISO. It's possible to turn through the range of set ISOs as well as the 3 Auto ISO settings - could you possibly have ISO set at 6400 instead of Auto 1, 2, or 3? (The Icon for ISO in the EVF will have a "dome" next to it, when Auto ISO is selected).
