Lenses without electrical contacts, like old lenses, cannot tell the camera the aperture value and the GH2 inserts 0.0 for the aperture as default. There are programs that allow you to change this data. Search for editing EXIF information in files. If you use Lightroom, there is a pluggin that can even enter the lens information into the files as well as the aperture used, but you need to remember it. If i remember, I record a short video where I say what lens and what aperture was used...  Al
