There is no such thing as a list of correct setting, apart from putting the camera into full Manual and that includes focussing.
The setting will depend on the available lighting conditions. I think this lens has an aperture range of f/8-F/32, so it should not be too difficult to obtain a decent image at 100-400 ISO.
You should be able to determine the correct shutter speed from the EV scale. Now I'm not sure if this scale is displayed in the viewfinder of the Sony, if not it should be acessible in the menu. As an alternative, viewing the histogram will help.
Basically, If your test photos come out black you need to increase the the exposure (reduce shutter speed)if the test is white then increase the shutter speed.
I would forget about using any filters until you master the basics of the lens
