Interesting ... I have one that what was sold as new in box (and probably
is). The ring was put on the lens rotated (the holes are symmetrical so the
ring can be rotated and still line up with the holes). The tab catches part
of the camera mechanism preventing it from working.
The quality control at Sig(nificant) Ma(lfunction) was unfortunate. They
seem to have good ideas.

I purchased this lens on ebay and have a questions about it. If any list
members have one, or have had one in the past, I appreciate any help you can
give me. My question is about the mount, which shows sighs of tampering
(worn screws), or to be more specific the diaphram linkage tab. This being a
fixed aperture lens, I would think the tab would be set at a fixed position,
but it moves somewhat freely through out the slot in the mount. Is this
normal, or has the mount been replaced?
