Cool! The various bodies are all similar, but all a little different. There are a few "Easter Eggs" and this is apparently one.

I edited my last post. See my correction.

As for an indication of over/under, EC is available in both Av and M modes. In addition, a viewfinder EV scale is available in M mode on flaghip models by using the optical preview feature.* I will have to research your K-S2 to see if it supports similar.

* Only visible if the optical viewfinder level feature is turned OFF.

I use older manual lenses almost (but not) exclusively on my K10 and K5IIs. I leave the camera in manual mode, and use the optical preview feature with the EV scale to help with exposure settings.



Same as I did with the needle EV scale in the viewfinder on my film SLR.
