I'm sure that this will not be the first time this question has been asked here, but I'm going to ask anyway.
Why can I not select an F-stop on my manual aperture lens on my D90 in D-movie mode.
All I get is a "FEE" code on my info screen.
Is there someway to circumnavigate this is issue?
Lens is 85mm Rokinon 1.4 MF

there is allot of information on how to use d90 in video mode , you can look it up
in regard to your question
in D90 (which doesnt have full manual controls in movie mode) , when your using a manual lens , you do not have in camera control over the f-stop it will allways say F-- because it cant recognize non-CPU (non AF), Third party lenses , or even AI and Pre AI nikkor lenses
so what you need to do is to make sure you in M mode in the dial ( no , P,SA wont work either )
and make sure that your also in M in the M/AF switch near the lens
only than you turn the aperture ring and than you can control your aperture manually , when recording or in live view
