It doesnt bother me, but I support this "online petition" to fuji because I dont see a reason why this feature should be unavailable to people who want it
Having said that ChrisDM, I'm thinking you're maybe using the wrong tool for the job? If you want the max available aperture for moving subjects (especially close-by), even if you get your programmable auto iso there will be something else that will let you down, particularly the slow AF (for this type of work), lack of mutliple AF points and the sub-par AF tracking which is a common feature in all mirrorless. If you want this job done without annoyances and compromises I think you're entering SLR territory, and probably high-end SLR too.
You're correct in that the AF system of the X-E1 is not ideal for moving subjects. However I am a professional photographer and shoot with DSLRs for a living. I want something smaller/lighter for personal/family/travel (which also includes moving subjects in changing light, even though the subjects are toddlers.. ) And having owned an Olympus OMD I am aware of both the capabilities and the limitations of the mirrorless genre. And there is no reason not to expect such a camera to have imprelmented properly such a useful feature that other major manufacturers seem to have figured out. It is a simple fix which would increase the utility of the camera significantly for those of us that photograph more than stationary subjects in broad daylight.
