How is your green button currently set up, since you say you're using it with M lenses?

I select my aperture, hit the button, and it displays the shutter speed I'm now locked in for proper exposure.

That's it--nothing complicated--based on the green button being set up for "Action in M Mode--Tv Shift." It's really just like Av mode, but you have to keep hitting the button.

And the reason I don't use Av mode is because it meters horribly with my Taks, way under, whereas this works just fine.
Thanks for the reply, Ira.
Actually, this was a question regarding my Cosina 55/1.2 and I always use the green button after selecting a given aperture. I never bothered with the program line(s) and will look into that.
