The backwards (i.e. wrong) ring rotation would drive me nuts.

The "+" and "-" meter is the opposite as well but I think in most cameras it can be reversed in the menu

Go for the "E" and learn to compensate for the moire. Eventually it will be come second nature. If you do a lot of video then it becomes a bigger issue.

The weirdest thing is going on. I put the d700 on mode "a" with my nikkor 105 VR ( it also hsppened on my 85 pce) the aperture dont go below 3.2 and sometimes up to 4. I van turn the wheel all i want but never reaches 2.8, why is that. I tried eith different iso, jpg tiff nef etc etc. Has this happened to someone else?

That is normal. As the magnification changes so does the aperture. Threw me off the first time as well. It should not happen on non-micro-nikkors but I've never played with the 85 PC-E.

The changing of aperture is common to macro lenses (or at least I've heard numerous times).

It only reaches 2.8 when you're close to infinity, if I'm wording that properly.
