(Nikon) Nikkor G lenses are electronically-controlled lenses built by Nikon which lack aperture rings on the lens barrel.
Much like Canons EOS lenses pioneered in 1987, Nikon G lenses have electronically-controlled apertures which are adjusted using on-camera controls. They thus cannot be used with older Nikon cameras.
cf. AF-I, aperture, EF, Nikkor.
