    Well I just learned something new! Thanks for the info, Nick. I will check it out and play around with it!

    Can be frustrating if you don't and try to change the shutter speed or something and it keeps changing the ISO.
    Ah, yes I forgot. That is a downside, you need to hit 'something' to exit the feature. For me, I just tap my bbf or 1/2 shutter. Its become habit.
    Yes, @Vixen , it is on the d7100.

    I found this setting when I got my 150-600. It was really awkward to set iso or focus modes with that lens mounted. Now I find using that setting more comfortable in all cases. My left hand can just keep a comfortable and balanced grip on the lens at all times and I never have to shift the camera weight to my right hand or fingers. My right hand is free to push buttons, make adjustments, swat flies, lol.
