Wired autobracketing in K10D


I noticed unnormal working with autobracketing in my K10d body. I'll try to take down my observation as much as posible. Yesterday I made deep analysis.
Let say that my settings look like this.
Manual mode, auto bracketing 3 shots +/-2EV

and my camera take 3 photos with 0/-2/+1,66 or 0/-2/0 (depending on Av i Tv values). Ater on values Av i Tv are different than they were set at first.
The matter is also if I take 3 shots continuously whether take 3 shots one after another pressing and releasing the button.
In the second case I get 3 photos with exposures:0/-3/+2.

I have AF on AF-S. In other case (AF-C, MF) autobracketing works just fine.

I am confused, and if anyone help me I'll be glad.
Please, check your body and let me know.

PS: Firmware version 1.00 - upgraded to 1.30 and still the same.

regards, farix

not fully sure what you mean...but I noticed something similar when I first started using the bracketing feature. The camera would change the exposure and apperature values if in manual mode. I started using apperature mode to ensure that the apperature did not change, leaving only the exposure times to change for the -2,0,+2 etc....
