External Flash (old) with the K-01

My four aperture ring 35mm (some over 20 years old) AF lenses all work beautifully on my K-01. But the best of all is that I can set it on Manual Mode and then set the the ring on the auto setting aperture and go to work easily indoors. Also, you can set the green button for what you want on an ambient scene then step back and shoot with the indoor setting. They are perfect. My old K10d did similar but it was not equipped with live view and through the finder it was harder to see the ambient reading. I haven't tried fill flash, but it seems it will work just as easily. What do others think?
