18-135 Lens f-stop Issue
Oct 10, 2012

Hello all, haven't been here in a while but I thank you all for the wealth of info on gear, I ended up upgrading to an A77 & 18-135 kit lens today!

While playing with the camera, I have noticed the f-stop with the lens will only go wide as f5.6 even at 18mm.  This was at aperture priority so I tried it in manual and the same result.  I then tried a few another lens and sure enough they both move the full range.

Does anybody know if this is an isolated problem or has others experienced it?  Or am I missing/forgetting something in the setup?  Is there a lens firmware update?  I will return for an exchange but thought I should ask first.  Thanks in advance.
