If you never used an older lens with an aperture ring, you will need to go to the custom menu #27 to 'permitted.' That all.

If you select the "A" setting on the aperture ring, the lens will function with the thumb wheel for f stops on the camera. You need to press the little silver button and turn the ring to enter the "A" setting on the lens. Custom menu #27 " using aperture ring" allows the camera/lens to function when you select f stops other than "A" on the aperture ring of the lens.You may also need to set SR length when you turn on the camera, try using 135mm as a compromise between 70-210mm.
Have fun
