In line with the new F65/n65, Nikkor is releasing type-"G" lenses: lenses without an aperature ring. The ap. is controlled bu your camera. The lens is compatible with the F5, F100, F/n80, F/n65, F/n60, F/n50, F-401-series, PRONEA 600i, PRONEA S and the D1. Sadly, for the F4, F/n90-series, F/n70, F-801-series and F-601M cameras, the lack of an aperature dial means the only way to change the ap. is by changing the shutterspeed in "program" mode.

I must admit, seeing a lens without an ap. ring is rather confusing, but it is a 'logical' if not natural shift towards giving the cosumer less of a hassle when wanting to shoot with high quality lenses.
