While the camera is "metering" the iso can't be switched back to auto. You need to wait a little bit I think (you can set the metering time lower, the lowest I think is 4s).

So, the metering work is the culprit? That's why I can't figure out, my mind didn't think as far as what you told me.

My metering is also at the lowest setting at 4s, but that still got me stuck at lowest ISO when I need it to be Auto and, when the ISO is already at Auto the exp comp can't be selected and being skipped by control wheel.

I also use Fv most of the time.

Yes, it's like when you want to use full manual or semi auto faster the Fv is the 1st choice.

In my R5, I keep the control wheel for aperture, front dial for exposure compensation, and the Fv setting most of the time is in the speed, so I can change those three parameters without moving the Fv setting (just with the other wheels). when I want to go back to auto speed, I just press the bin button, etc.

I set Aperture to the lens control ring as aperture is a lens' atribute so my brain doesn't need to think which wheel to dial to change aperture, it's subjectively faster for me to work that way. I still need the rear wheel to change between shutter, exp comp and ISO, and oftenly I set my ISO at auto but not most of the time, so the rear wheel is used to switch between shutter and exp comp more often.

But I think I would try your setup and see if it work faster for me than my own setup.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Yes, I also use the lens control wheel (in my case the adapter including the ring) for aperture. 
the top rear wheel is mandatory to change between the settings, but I mean that I have the round wheel around the set button for exposure compensation. Doing it this way i minimize duplicated settings when using other modes (like manual). I only need to use the rear top dial when I want to change iso (that I have it auto most of the time). And as I don’t change the iso that often it’s all fine for me (basically just go to a certain value and then back to auto with the Jon button).

the thing that Canon “fixes” the metering for a few seconds is quite annoying. In Sony you could see the metering changing in real time, but in Canon you need to half press to see the ISO value (for example).
