Shutter speed mode using manual lenses

Hi all, I would like to ask if its possible on K-01 to use the shutter speed priority mode using manual lens?

Say I want to shoot at 1/50s with the given aperture and let the ISO sensitivity change automatically.

My issue is that many times the K-01 like to push the ISO too much. While I know the ISO performance of the K-01 sensor is pretty good, I would prefer a 1/60s ISO1600 than a 1/120s ISO3200 (if my calculation is correct)

Any information or any suggestions on how to get around this problem?

Meter as you would normally using the green button, then adjust the shutter speed & aperture as needed

Hi Adam, thanks for the reply.

So your suggestion is to use the M-mode and meter with the green button right? Auto ISO?
