If I wanna change aperture do I have to use the dial or can I too set aperture via the menu system?

What do you mean by "menu system"?  When changing aperture, it really does not matter whether you're changing aperture via an aperture ring on the lens, or a finger wheel under your finger, it's all electronic.  It all goes into the camera's computer brain.  But this does not mean that it's a "menu system".

I think you really need to go out and use these cameras, and educate yourself on cameras in general.  You seem to have some erroneous pre-conceived notions on how to use them.  All these cameras have direct control of aperture, and it is ALL done electronically.  The main difference is whether it's done via a finger wheel, or an aperture ring, or whatever.  I don't know of any decent camera that forces you to dig into any menu to change the aperture setting!
