Aperture is electronically coupled anyway...

I forgot that as far as I know, the aperture ring is a pure "mockup", it just controls the aperture electronically, not mechanically. Just like the Manual focus on these cameras is not direct, but focus by wire. I hardly ever used it.

As aperture is electronically coupled, control via thumb wouldbe the more logic choice anyway.

At least in my opinion. The lens ring is pure nostalgia without necessity, inlike on the older lenses where the ring really changed something.
