Coming from Nikon and I am struggling to set auto ISO while shooting in manual mode. Can you do this with Sony? I might have it set, but I can never see what ISO I am shooting at. If I knew I could adjust my SS and/or fstop for the situation. Any advice appreciated.

I know that you can lock you ISO to auto on the the Sony A7ii and as well the Sony RX10 m4.
On both mine I touch the wheel thing on the right side and this brings up ISO.
And there you can set it to Auto and I have even set my ISO to a max of 800.
I have done this to both camera's as I going over that number I seem to fail.
So you have to set it to your own liking but it can b done So I hope this helps.

Same on A7iii and A1, so I think it should be standart across all Sony alpha cameras.
