I have just bought this lens mainly to experiment with. Can anyone advise on best camera settings please.

USING M or K LENSES:

In the 'custom' menu:

'Using aperture ring' - set to 'permitted'.
'Green button in manual' - set to 'Tv Shift'.

Now with the camera in 'Manual', pressing the green button will set the correct* shutter speed for whatever aperture you have selected on the aperture ring.

*or, sometimes, nearly correct! Check the histogram & fine tune aperture/shutter speed as needed.
