But you can set AE Microadjustment if you had to for EC compensation. Just add it to your My Menu and set it when needed. As close as you can get to EC in manual with auto ISO.
There's a reason why you normally set it with a quick control dial............coz you need to do it quickly, not drilling down through a load of stupid menus, by that time the shots gone
Really, you set EC that often shot after shot? I can do this in 3 button clicks, dial in my EC, and hit Set.... shoot a bunch... done!
Not very tedious at all. Menu->Set->Info, change value, Set
Sure not as easy as EC in Av and Tv, but certainly not as exaggeratedly difficult as you try to make it out to be.
