It's a Sun Bittern. That's what they do.

I think Nikon really made a mistake by taking away the aperture ring on their new G lenses. This makes them hard to use on extension tubes. I don't know how it works on the 1.4 and 1.7 telextenders. Maybe they do.

I would not buy a lens with no aperture ring. It would work only on a limited range of cameras. No future-proofing.
