I picked up a cool 28mm F2.8 series E lens. I added the focal length and aperture in Non-CPU lens menu. When I put it on the camera it says F22 and if I change the aperture dial on the lens it doesn't change on the camera screen. Basically it always meters at F22.

I was under the impression that *any* E series lens will meter on the D200. Is something wrong with my camera? The dial on the lens is working because I can see the hole getting smaller.

It isn't a total loss. I really got this lens for star photography and I don't need the meter for that anyways. However, given the focal length it would be a cool lens to use in other situations as well.
