With manual lens attached and in A-priority mode, you're kinda doing it strange, as you don't have "real" control over the shutter speed. You are changing the aperture on the lens manually, the camera being in A-priority adjusts the time automatically (because it's Aperture priority), but to actually have control over shutter speed you have to change the camera's aperture which will affect the shutter speed (but has no real impact on the actual aperture applied to the shot).

If you were in S-priority mode, you would be 100% manual: aperture controlled manually on the lens, shutter speed controlled via assigned control (plus control over the exposure compensation and ISO).

So basically, when using manual lens, it's better to be in Shutter-priority mode.
