    Hi, just got myself a Pentax 67, and now also a set of auto extension rings for closeups. So now i have a question for the Pentax experts here.

    I noticed that while the aperture lever in the two largest rings are spring loaded, this is not the case for the thinnest ring, where the lever is swinging freely back and forth when I turn the ring.

    Is this as it should be?

    Thanks,
    Thor Egil
