I just slapped an old Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 on my D3 and in the aperture "A" mode, I'm unable to change the shutter speed. In the "A" mode, you've selected the aperture and the camera selects the shutter speed.
You can do as you choose in the "M"/Manual mode, as far as shutter speed goes.
I think I misread your original question, sorry.
BTW, are the other lenses manual or auto focus?
Hope this helps.
