The EXIF issue for aperture is a deal killer for me. The FTZ really should have had an index tab.

Not for me. I'm glad I didn't have to pay extra for it, and that it allows my camera to be compatible with even pre-AI lenses (which adding a tab would have broken, unless it was the unique DF-style retractable tab, which would cost even more).

Maybe Nikon will eventually make a more retro (meaning also less retro) adapter; but for now, it is what it is.

Yes, the retractable tab of the DF appears to be unique as far as digital cameras are concerned, but a number of film models had this feature.
