Doesn't auto iso in M mode mean that non-A lenses only shoot wide open?
Depends on the camera and the lens mount:

Camera: The K-01 doesn't have an aperture control lever. The K100DS does. I don't have the K100DS charged up at this time, so I can't comment on its behaviour with M- & K-series lenses in M+Auto-ISO mode.

Mount: With the K-01, you use M42 lenses, switched to "Man." on the lens (so the aperture ring actually is operating), shown as being in "Av" mode of the camera's screen (even if the AE dial is on "M").

Dan.

Why not just learn to use full on Manual Exposure mode?
It's not a question of "learning to use" Manual mode. I know how to use Manual mode and often use it. But when I photograph dynamic situations (usually fast-moving animals outside in settings where the light is changing, or my position relative to the light is changing), it's useful to start (and sometimes stay) in TaV mode. I get the shot. Starting in Manual mode often means I miss the moment. If the situation stabilizes, I often switch to Manual mode and continue shooting.

Thanks. I only shoot in Manual Mode and often wondered why anyone would choose anything other than that when you have full control.
