Agreed – the rings are the way to go – I just want to make sure my camera is able to do this in case I buy a ringless lens (viltrox 85, 27mm pancake, etc).

I believe a ringless lens can be controlled by the front ring with the ISO DIAL SETTING set to COMMAND, but I don't have a ringless native mount lens to try.

Thank you – that is good to know, and that puts me at ease.

Unfortunately the SS/F configuration, added to the list above, also doesn't seem to solve the issue :/

Hmm, works on mine. I'll have to think about that...

I noticed that when the top dials are set manually, and the exposure compensation dial is set to 'C', the front dial in effect 'adjusts the aperture', but is really performing an exposure compensation using the only remaining third of the exposure triangle, the aperture. This could still possibly satisfy my use case.
