fEE Error on nikon d7000, aperture ring is already locked

Hi All-

I am having trouble with my wife's d7000 and 50mm f/1.8 D nikon lens. Note that this combination has worked before.

The lens is set to f/22, with the aperture ring locked. When I put it on the camera the display shows 'fEE', which is supposed to be "Lens aperture ring is not set to minimum aperture" (which, it is). The DX 35mm lens works fine.

I also have a d90 body- and the 50mm lens works fine on that, as-is. I don't have any other "D" lenses laying around.

Any other ideas?

How does this setting get communicated to the camera for a D lens? is it electronic, or mechanical? Nothing LOOKS wrong in the camera lens mount area.

The firmware has been updated to 1.01, and that didn't help.
