K-50 custom setting for AE lock + AF

So I have my AE-L button on my K-50 set to AF2 setting which makes it operate the AF and the shutter button does not, but I am interested in using AE lock as well. Is there any way to use them both, either with the same button or with two separate controls? I like using the AF this way because it is easier to back focus.

Thanks.

Don't have the K-50, but I'm pretty sure it's either/or.

I suppose you can set the AE to lock with AF (in custom settings) like on other Pentax DSLR.
