Settings for manual lenses

Hello,
I just bought the Laowa 12mm lens. How do I set up my camera to use this lens? Thank you.
Terry

This is an A-type lens, so you don't need to do anything different from a modern lens, other than focusing it manually when it's time to shoot.

Be sure to leave the aperture ring in the A setting at all times.

Thank you, Adam. How do I get an aperture setting?

Got it. Setting the lens to A took care of all my problems. Great!
