Nikon 50mm f/1.8D aperture setting?
I just got the Nikon 50mm f/1.8D for my D600. Can someone tell me in aperture priority mode, what should I set the aperture on the lens to? Since I am setting the aperture in the camera, does it matter what I set the lens to?
The instructions say that in shutter priority to lock the aperture to f/22, but it does not say what to do in aperture priority mode.

To add to Leonard's post, set to the smallest aperture (f/22) and be sure to use the locking tab on the aperture ring body to prevent the aperture ring from moving. Depending on how you have the main and sub-command dials set, you will use one or the other to control the aperture.

If you prefer to use the aperture ring on the lens, then set Custom Menu f5 -> Aperture Setting to Aperture Ring.
When set to Aperture Ring, the dial cannot be used to set aperture on lenses with an aperture ring. G-type lenses always use the dial. For non-CPU lenses, the aperture ring is always used and the dial does nothing.
