Hi all,

Quick question for anyone who might own this lens. I know that this lens has a clickless aperture, but can anyone clarify whether the "A/M switch" on this lens is supposed to click into place, or is it just a stop down DOF preview lever? I have a sample in my hands that springs back when I release it, and I just am trying to determine whether this is normal behavior.

Thanks!

I have the BM version and I don't recall exactly but if I remember to check when I get home tonight I will let you know how that one functions...

I have a BM mount Skoparex and on mine, the A-M switch does not lock in place on both settings.

It is not an "A/M switch" but a DOF preview button.
