Please explain to me the mechanism Nikon uses to change the position of the aperture ring when the zoom extends or retracts. I'm not familiar with those lenses.

There is no such mechanism.  There is a mechanical aperture ring, that is all.  I forget if the aperture just reads out smaller or if it gives an error and won't let you shoot.

Fuji, on the other hand, has no method of forcing the aperture ring to change.

It's an encoder, they can make it do whatever they want.  It could default to the smaller aperture, or it could flash an error if out of range.  Maybe that would confuse some people but I'd personally prefer that to no markings at all.

As for the other 5 paragraphs you typed, pretty insulting.  Basically you assume I know absolutely nothing about lenses and the Fuji XFs in particular.  Just because my preference is different than yours doesn't mean I'm ignorant and need to be schooled, OK?
