While I agree with manual lenses or AF lenses with manual aperture control, it just doesnt make sense to not be able to do so in Live view mode, when selecting video controls in the menu but being able to change aperture for stills in Live view when shutting the "video manual controls off". Besides, some of the sharpest lenses we own are AF-S G lenses, so actually Nikon isnt providing full compatibility for what the brand offers, this is really nasty.

Finally, for video prouctions we often use AF just to set the focus quickly before filming, so manual lenses are not always an option.

The Camera Store review contradicts the video output claim: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IosQ4xCJBB0 (around 3:50). I understand that the HDMI output depends on what display options you select.

Not being able to select the aperture on the body is weird, but is there anything preventing you from using a lens with a real aperture ring?

(You can adjust aperture just fine in photo live view.)
