Hello!

Having bought my first manual Olympus lens, need to know if the f-stop ring has click stops. The 50mm 1.8 f-stop ring does not have any.

Thanks!

Manual:

All of my Olympus OM system lenses have detent stops. You will feel them more than hear them. However, the OM system allows you to shoot anywhere in between apertures.

Regards and Good Shooting:

There is more to this and the complete directions should be available on the web.
