I don't follow the video world, but this is not exactly big news in the Nikon sphere. As far as I know, every Nikon DSLR that meters with AIS lenses has exactly this same feature. At a minimum the D2h, D2x, D3, D3s, D3x, D4, D700, D800, D8003, D300 and D300s, and I'm fairly sure that the D1, D1x and D1h did too. The only one in question (to me) is the D7000.
