K-x ISO question


I have the K-x and today I noticed that in the viewfinder, the ISO value was shown with a star after is, like so: ISO 100*
Only the * is actually located at the bottom of the shown value. Also, the start is only shown when the focus button is pressed halfway down.

I'm pretty sure it was not there before, but then I could be mistaken. Anyone know if it is normally there and what it means?

It's telling you that you pressed the AE-L button. I've done that by accident, and wondered the same thing about the sudden asterisk.

Thanks for the reply. I found out I didn't press the AE-L button, but I had the menu option set for AE to be locked along with focus... So same effect in the end, doh!
