It's to lock the aperture ring to the smallest aperture, so the auto function will work properly.

Thank you, and do you know why my D7000 won't take a photo at all with it unless it's set to f/16, even in M? All I get is a flashing  F EE.

One reason I bought the D lens was for the fun of using the aperture ring in M.

Should I start a new thread?
