    Got a Nikkor 50mm S-auto and blades have oil on them. Diapraghm lever in back of lens seems to stick when I open up the aperture. Link to manual or guide or anything step-by-step much appreciated.

    This is a very common problem and youtube has many tutorials on fixing these lenses, for instance this one: . This is the one I used when I had the same problem. The biggest issue is reassembling the blades, you may have to try it several times, so don't do it in a hurry :smile:
