After I used it once I just used the camera body to control the aperture.
I have to disagree here: I don't have any problems with the 24-50 AF-D, 28-70 AF-D, the 28-70 AF-S, the 28-105 AF-D, the 1.8/50 AF-D, the 1.8/85 AF-D, the 2/105 AF-D and 4/300 AF-S.
With all these lenses I can even set the aperture ring at 1/3 stops difference manually.
