e-m5 mk2. How often do folk use Manual and Lever 2?

I shoot quite a lot of theatre productions. I use Manual all the time as I find Auto Exposure gets too confused by the lights on the stage.

Up to now I have been setting what I felt was an ASA that would cover me for the dimmest lit scenes - and adjusting the speed/aperture as the lighting changed.

It has just occured to me that I am probably better equipped if I chose my speed and aperture and worked with the Lever in position 2 where I can alter the exposure by raising or lowering the ASA.

The default sets the front dial for the changes. (That seems OK and I am not sure that reversing it so the back dial handles ASA is any more logical.)

I have never read about anyone working this way.

I wonder why.

All comments from the gurus are, as always, warmly welcomed.
