K3 freezing

I was shooting with my new K3 and my k 50mm f1.2 and the camera would freeze up if I pressed the green button before half pressing the shutter button. The camera was in manual exposure mode.

Is this repeatable with any other lens?

The 50 is my only manual lens, I was not in live view, and it did it three times. I am trying to replicate it again but not having any luck so far.

I have had my K-3 freeze when the contacts on the bayonett does not become short circuited by the old/manual lens AND pushing the green button. I tried shorting them with some alu-foil and the problem went away.
