    dude! the manual! read it!

    it is set electronically by the rotating dial! you should be able to see the f-number changing when u turn it.

    but seriously, before you ask anymore questions, please the read manual yea?

    Thanks Bro, seriously, I did not "touch" the user Manual at all since I got my D80 Body about 1 week ago, relying only on this link -->> http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d80...sers-guide.pdf for information

    hehe no problems. go through the manual, find out how to control it. if not, set it to auto and tada! a very expensive point and shoot.

    you can set the aperture on the d80 body. just turn the dial and you should notice the f number changes.

    All Nikon "G" type lenses do not have any aperture ring. In fact future lenses will most ppbly be design in this way. Previous older and "D" type lenses were use on older film bodies like F401, F501, F301, F601, F801, F90 etc as you need to control aperture settings on lenses... One other way will be using reversal ring or extention tube.
