Auto ASA Only On iAuto (E-PL2)??
Seems like auto ASA is the only option when shooting in iAuto mode. If I set my ASA to 200 in P mode or in the menu, it automatically goes into auto ASA mode if I switch to iAuto. Is this the nature of the system?

iAuto = Classic point & shoot mode. Very few user options to change anything, although I did figure out how to change AF spot, single or burst mode, RAW or JPEG. Same as on the E-P3. Far as I can see, the user has no say in ISO selection in iAuto.

Thanks so much Greg. I don't believe I will be using iAuto anymore. If I use that setting to shoot indoors with the built in flash, everything is taken at 1600ASA and that doesn't seem right. Just set it there a couple of times so my wife could take a few pics. She does not like anything complicated, said she would rather use her Canon compact which does take amazingly nice pics for a 200 dollar camera. Her camera has options for using manually, or shutter/aperture preferred but she wants nothing to do with learning that so her camera remains on Auto.
