The issue is you have to go into the menu to change it.
That's not the greatest. Doable. But not as fast as it should be.
I predict that auto ISO will be a big thing and a company will come out soon
which will have you direct control on it. Or give you and option of
assigning a button to it that's a big thing now. Assigning buttons to
Leica is big on this.
Being the first in NOT making its customers go through menus.
But be hands on like the old days. With controls you can see and feel in
real time in the real world.

Listening Wetzlar? I think they are.

Notice I saw Wetzlar not Solms. Getting ahead of myself as usual.
