Strange thing in Tv mode ?

I noticed today that my K-5 change the shutter time itself when i press the shutter button half way.
If I choose say 1/125 s and then press the shutter button half way to focus, the camera change the time to a longer time if it thinks it needs it and use that longer time when I take the Picture.


I thought that when in Tv mode the shutter time is the time that I choose and the camera can only change the aperture.
Do I have some setting wrong or what´s happened?

Item 7 in the custom settings menu, turn off Auto EV Compensation.

Have you checked your settings? In C1-menu item 7 there is a Auto EV Correction that just might have been turned on...

THIS...this is why I love this freakin' place. I was experiencing the exact same issue; thus, I would never use Tv mode. This morning, I'm browsing other posts, think I should search my problems with Tv mode, and BAM! Here's the fix. Thanks, y'all.
