Press and hold the shutter button? Does not seem to work, but I appreciate the tip.
No, press and hold the ISO button (on the flagship models, that is) while turning the rear wheel. It might also work that way on the K-70, but its ergonomics aren't so good for that while the camera is held to the eye, which is the point.

Oh of course, and you don't need to hold the ISO button just tap it. I think I'm just going to work on making this adjustment without lowering the camera.

Thanks for all of the replies and suggestions! I'd like to try out TAv mode but for some reason when I set the dial to TAv/Av/Tv/Sv/P/AUTO/SCN it just comes up as "Aperture priority" in-camera. Can't turn off auto shutter speed in any of these dial settings. I must have turned something off somewhere to cause this? Testing with an A* 300mm F/4.
I have a k70, Just a thought~
Do you have Menu, C, 4, #24- 'using aperture ring' setting on 1 or 2?

I use older A lenses occasionally, and can use all the auto modes. I'm on setting 2, enable. I just tested with an older A lens, and with it off A, on manual , all auto modes show aperture priority. If setting is on 1, shutter won't release unless lens is in A.

Played around a bit with my A series. I can get TAv if I set it to "A" regardless of the "Using Aperture Ring" setting, which is good news since I need it set to 2 for all my other lenses!
