There is no setting on the camera because the camera can't detect the lens.  The camera simply meters the exposure and tells you an appropriate shutter speed and possibly ISO.

I was under the impression you should be using Shutter priority (S mode).  This would let you set the shutter speed AND the aperture ring, while letting you use auto ISO which seems like a popular gripe about M mode.  (M mode doesn't do auto ISO).
