The minimum shutter speed in Auto ISO (+ exposure compensation possible) is really essential, and while not being a software specialist I am pretty sure this would only take a few lines of code!

We (the users who want that feature) must make ourselves be heard by Fuji, they just have to implement it, it was already in the x100.

I started a poll about that feature on dpreview/ Fuji SLR/ X- Forum, roughly 60-70% want that feature, the rest doesn't care. But I believe that those who don't think they need it don't really know how to make this feature work in real life photography. It is just the logic continuation of the classic "A mode" in the digital age. Because as soon as light gets low, you have to leave the A mode, otherwise the camera will select absurd shutter speeds like 1/30s (for the 18mm) or 1/52s for the 35/1,4 which will not allow really sharp images.

Fuji please fix that horrible bug!

EDIT: I just finished an Email to Fuji headquarters in Tokyo where I explained again, why minimum shutter speed combined with Exposure compensation is necessary and that I'd politely ask them to add in a future update. All of the asked features are things that the camera can already perform, just not in this combination.
Minimum shutter speed: The 35/1,4 is an amazing lens, but with 1/52s (which the camera selects in Auto ISO) it just cannot give it's optimum performance. Exposure comp is necessary because no metering system is good enough to cope with all light situations.
