John, this solved it!
(the Dudes last name is Cannon!!!!)
I read this three times and digested it,. tried my camera waited the 8 seconds and made sure metering had stopped, AND I STILL COULD NOT get Auto ISO.....
I was not concerned, because I had it set up to only let the ring work with * pressed so I could not accidentally bump it.
This is an option that once removed, and once I waited the 8 seconds, AUTO ISO was available!
One could also remove exposure lock from the * button if one really wanted to keep the two button lock to prevent accidental ISO bumping.
I'm set the metering timer down to 4 seconds, and will try it like this for a while. Given the control ring has the detents, I am not overly concerned about bumping ISO accidentally, so worth a try. I rarely use the metering with the * button, so if I have to, I will rest it's function.
