aperture is in the lens it self... pls google for it and read up.
to select a aperture u do it in camera.
minimum F-stops like 16-22 even 36 no problem all lens will have at least minimum F22
its the widest or max aperture that matters. :)

aperture is about the controlling of amount of light entering the camera right?? It's controlled by a diaphragm...The bigger it is, the more light it allows to enter.Thus have a smaller value for eg. F2.7...correct?

The aperture itself is on the lens. When you mount the lens onto the camera body, you can adjust the aperture eg. f2.8, f22 etc thru the body itself. However, there are some lenses which you can adjust the aperture on the lens itself. Errr ... can?

orh...okay...so basically, to put it into simple words/sentence

if there is aperture ring on lens, use that
if threre is no aperture ring on lens, then use body to adjust...correct???

Erm...but if there is aperture ring on lens, can i use body to adjust too?

Yes, but I think most of the new lens do not have aperture ring.
