Use of Leica Q2 AFL+AEL lock button

I am new the Leica forum having just purchased a Q2.  I use a lot of "stitched panos" when I travel for landscapes and got use the X100V where you could lock the focus and exposure and take multiple exposures while the AFL+AEL remained locked.

On the Q2, it appears that the AFL+AEL lock resets after each exposure.  This makes taking successive exposures challenging to keep exposure value consistent from frame to frame.

I am sure a German engineer thinks this is the way to do it so you don't forget to unlock the AFL+AEL, but I much prefer the Fuji way of doing it.

Could be a "deal breaker" for me and the Q2...

Any way around this in the settings menu?
