.... I thought I could specify the aperture of the lens on the lens and on the camera.

aperture of adapted lenses cannot be set by the cameras and is set on the lens only ( resp. lenses that don't have aperture ring an adapter that has aperture settings is needed )

the camera will meter the light hitting the sensor and e.g. in A mode choose correct shutter speed
