Mine had a "declicked" aperture ring which I found to be a bit of a PITA as the aperture ring moved very freely. But the aperture ring has these small lips sticking out so I made a tiny slip-friction pad using soft, solid cardboard glued to one of those lips using a tiny strip of black insulation tape. Now the aperture ring moves smoothly but it is no longer "flapping" around Wink
I have the "macro" version .. FWIW

that is good, a very impressive lens. I wonder if it is the same optics as the AF lens ? I've got that but never used it.

They are not same, see > http://www.pbase.com/kkawakami/rokkor_lens_resolutions
AF version is an F4 lens, not a bad lens I guess.
