There is no special mechanism at my two Nikon lenses, just a green mark for wide and a yellow one for tele end. Very easy to use!

It may be.

But none of the scales are true for any intermediate focal lenghts.

Not necessarily. See my other post on how Leica solved the problem. Nikon's way sounds clunky in comparison...

I have just read your other post and I am not convinced of the merits of the system you describe.

I'd much rather have an unmarked ring and get the accurate aperture info in the viewfinder at all times.

I do not believe that the unmarked aperture ring is a sign of lack of commitment on Fuji's part to the X system.
