Hi folks, I am not a big Nikon user, so I have a few questions about this lens. As seen in the image, it has a switch on it, and I'm not sure what it does. Also, I can use it on my D7000, but only on f22! Any other aperture, and I get a message blinking at me in the viewfinder "fEE"! I don't know what this means, or what the camera is doing. I bought this lens as a portrait lens for the nice bokeh, but I don't think that will happen at f22. Finally, is there an adapter I can use, to attach this lens to a Fuji X Pro1?  I don't mind manual focus, and actually kind of prefer it, so that isn't an issue.

Thank you for any insights!

"fEE is an error code of sorts where the camera cannot control the full range of apertures of the lens, the switch you are referring to I believe is the minimum aperture lock lever and could explain why you cannot alter the aperture if it has been set at F22. Alternatively the contacts on the lens and/or camera body might be dirty, or one of the contacts on the lens may be jammed.

I haven't read Fatman75's response in full but I couldn't see a reference to “Non-CPU Lenses” in the link. Non-CPU lenses can be set up in your camera menu but you'll have to check your manual to see how it's done for your D7000. I've no idea about mounting to a Fuji.
