D800, live view, and non CPU lenses: aperture stuck?
2 months ago

Wondering if any other d800 users have run into this issue. I'm using a non-CPU lens (nikkor p 55mm micro) on a d800. I 'registered' the lens' aperture in the camera's non CPU list. When using the lens in live view, it is permanently in it's max aperture (f3.5), no matter what I set the lens ring to. I've used the same lens on a d7000 and live view updates to to the lens stopping down.
The weirdest thing about it is that if I change the d800's non-CPU selector to an unregistered number in the list, the aperture then works in live view.
