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.

Yes.

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

Should I start a new thread?

NO!

P.S.: See Custom Menu item f6 -> Aperture setting

Thank you, Marianne.  I've been shooting only G lenses since I got the D7K body and forgot about that item f6.  I knew I was doing something wrong (hoped). I looked up the F EE  code in the manual but it only said I didn't have it in f/16, which I already knew. It did not point me to the solution like you did.

It sure is nice to still have the option of using the sub-command dial at times, especially for the incremental f-stops.

Thanks again.
