As I understand it, Nikon crippled the ability to change apertures in LV with AF-S lenses. I like to do macro photography with LV and I'm accustomed to changing the aperture via the sub-command dial. Can I set the D600 to use the aperture ring of my AF-D 60 and 105 f/2.8 micro lenses and change apetures like in the days of film? Would I be able to change the aperture in DMovie? From what I've read I need to use a non cpu lens to change the aperture in LV. Is this correct? I hope not since I've got a bunch of D lenses. Lastly, why did Nikon cripple the ability to change apertures?
