Hi to all!
A few days ago i posted a topic regarding a Nikkor 70-300 f4.0-5.6 G lens, i have noticed this lens has no aperture ring. If i want to use this lens mounted on a Nikon N65, will i be able to use all the camera capabilities? I think that with this lens not all the exposure modes (aperture priority, shutter priority,...) are valid, but i am not really sure. Is this lens easy to use? i have never used a lens with no aperture ring, i thought the only lenses withouth ring were the mirror lenses.
Here in Spain the Nikkor 70-300 G costs about 180 euros (USD 180), many of you say that the Nikkor 70-300 ED offers a better quality and the price difference is small compared to the G model, could you tell me the price for the ED lens (approximately)?

My lenses do not have a ring where you set the apperture manually. But my lenses are electronically operated. The camera sets the apperture through those little contacts you see on the mount. I dont know the Nikon models, but I assume the N65 is advanced enough to use this lens with all its features.
