I'm not arguing that smaller apertures will let in the same amount of light. Heck I'm not even arguing that Olympus has to ditch their ND filter (maybe it is useful for some long exposures). I'm just saying they should be more honest about this...both in their manual and in their AP menu.

Most users that select AP do so for DOF...not to change the amount of incoming light. Most users looking for the deep DOF will use the biggest fstop, not realizing that it could double the iso and quadrupedal the SS while not affecting DOF. Your casual user will also equate fuzzy images as being a sign of poor camera quality, and not realize it was the setting they chose.

I agree, I think it would be better when you turn the dial in A mode, you would go from "f2.8" to "f2.8 ND" instead of "f2.8" "f8", because you didn't get any extra DOF.
