I'm torn between the 600 and 800. One of the features the 800 has that the 600 doesn't is to control the aperture during DMove and micro shooting. I have a bunch of AF-D and a couple of AF lenses. Can I control the the aperture with the AF-D lenses or do I have to use a manual focus lens to control aperture? For me, it's more important to control the aperture when using LV.
