Re: Changing ISO doesn't change "Exposure"....

Hm, this happened long ago already.

When shooting slides or other film with fixed ISO you were quite limited in exposure. PASM modes were useful then. When you felt strongly about a shuttertime, like in sports, or an aperture like in portraits.

Now autoISO makes it possible to pick both. Only remnant is, if you are too greedy and use unnecessary fast shuttertime and unnecessary small aperture, you come home with a high ISO, grainy, noisy picture. But you still get a picture if you need that shutter and aperture..

I like to retain Auto(matic), for thoughtless point and shoot situations, though I have a point and shoot LX3 that is smaller and lighter.

Otherwise the mentioned M with autoISO fills everything for me. Aperture and Shuttertime priority can go, as far as I am concerned.
