Sidenote: I believe that the K20D, wehen doing an exposure bracket, changes both, aperture and exposure time, at least in M. Doesn't it do it as well in Av?
In Av mode AEB will only change the shutter speed. In M and Tv (and Sv) it will adjust both aperture and shutter... which I find kind of weird, as I'd expect Tv to only adjust aperture. Given the changes to DOF, I'd prefer if AEB simply stuck to shutter speeds and left my opening alone!

Thanks. So, I'll change my habits and do AEB in Av. If available light permits...

Auto EV compensation (as I understand it -- and I can be wrong) actually is no compensation. The opposite, actually. It tries to maintain a correct EV exposure value by changing "the other parameter" if the predefined paramater (exposure time or aperture) has reached its limiting value.
Hi, thanks for all the info, i have been wondering about this feature too. It sounds like a good life-saver if you have your settings set for what you're planning to take, and then you catch something else under very different lighting (eg. behind you or in the sky) that you want to snap instantly and you've got only a split second to do it before losing the opportunity.
