Can't use non-A lenses with K30...

Hi,

I have not been able to achieve stop-down metering with non-A lenses on the K-30... Pictures can be taken but regardless of aperture set by the ring, all photos are taken and metered at the widest aperture...

Aperture ring is enabled, raw button is set to optical review, AE-L is set, green button has been pressed, focus is set to manual, dials and button have been customised, user 1&2 settings have been tried; instruction manual, forums, guides for old bodies have been read...

BTW, Manual mode does not exist regardless of top dial setting, when using non-A lenses; the only settings are Av, bulb and movie.

Newer lenses (with A-button and newer) work without a glitch!

Please help!!

P/S Please forgive me if I have re-uploaded the same message, as the first did not seem to post; can the moderator delete one of them if this is the case? Sorry...

Pentax K-30
