New K-01 won't recognize my 50mm 1.4 M?

I am certain this comes down to user error, and unfortunately I could not find a post that answered this question. I just received a K-01 today and I have to say, for the price I paid for it I am very in love. Far from perfect, but such a great compliment to my k-r.

Any ways, as the title says I put my legacy 50mm 1.4 M lens on the camera and it seems to get confused. It won't let me take a picture or adjust anything. I've tried every mode, Av, M none of them work. On the screen "F--" blinks in red at the bottom right corner and it won't do anything.

What am I doing wrong here? I really bought this camera to use with manual, glass help me here

Hi Metalwizards,
Please refer to this:
I don't own a K-01 but I believe it will solve your problems...
Have fun,
