HasselbladZeiss aperture rings


Well-Known Member
Does anyone know why the weird design of the fittings to the aperture rings on CFE/i lenses?

The rings on my CF lenses are odd enough, but the CFE lens has, to my mind, very weird "interrupted/broken" fittings to the aperture rings.


Like the bits on the CF lenses, the parts that remain of what could have been a full aperture ring on CFi/CFE lenses are placed where your fingers will find them. The rest of the 'full ring' is not needed, hence not there.

Thanks. Makes sense to me, although in my hands they are not always exactly where I need them!
