I use S mode + auto ISO at low light light, when I need a faster shutter speed than A mode selects to freeze motion and if I reckon I try to handhold a shorter shutter speed than A mode selects to save on ISO in low light.

When using S mode during day / at bright light I constantly must be careful to choose a short enough shutter speed to not overexpose which happens when the ISO already is at the lowest and shutter speed selected is not fast enough, and if the shutter selected is too fast the ISO would go up which is to avoid, therefore during day / at bright light it's A mode + auto ISO

This of course with any manual lens that has an aperture ring, not only FDs, and me too I really like the 'permanent dof preview', that anytime I can see in my EVF / on LCD exactly what the sensor will record
