Samyang 24mm T/S with d800e

This lens is clearly a 100% manual lens without any form of CPU and I am wondering if there is a way to make the aperture setting on the camera change when I rotate the sub-menu control wheel (the one on the front)?

The Lens has a max aperture of f3.5 but I normally use it at f5.6-f8 as this is the sharpest range but for metering I need to change the non-CPU lens data each time to get the camera metering aperture to change from f3.5 to whatever f-stop I am using.

Is there a way to make the f-stop change in the camera display and thus be used in the metering?

Hopefully it can be and that I am not missing something that is blindingly obvious
