K-01 isn't metering(green button) with Manual lens?

Arrrrgggghhh, this happened to me last night and i couldn't figure it out. Of course a google search quickly showed me why I was having this issue(after banging my head around the issue a few times of course), and i want to share it here. If your using a lens without the "A" setting then you must use a set iso, (i.e turn off auto iso).

It is a well known issue...

It carried over to the K-30 as well, even though the K-30 has a TAv mode...
