Onyx and tuanokc....Thanks! That's the answer I was looking for. So it's not an aperture ring, it's the focal length indicator I was referring too, had never seen one before and mixed it up with the aperture ring (no, i do not have one). Therefore, I guess I dont have to worry about what value it's set at before installing lens! Thanks guys!

Also, when you're putting the lens on, don't press the "release" button on the body - as I found sometimes when I did it, the AF won't engage.

Just line up the dot on the lens mount with the dot on the body, stick em together and gently rotate till it clicks.

Yup, I figured that one out after a couple of times of connecting the lens... the first couple of times I did just that (pressed the release button while connecting lens) and couldn't autofocus, therefore could take no shots... but figured out very shortly..thought my camera was defective, boy did I feel smart!!! :idea:
