Re: The REAL Answer for the Unmarked 10-24 Aperture Ring...

I don`t see any reason why it can be done at 14 mm lens and not at 10-24.

The 14 mm (or 18, 35, 56, 60) does not have OIS. Perhaps the "A" electrical switch and/or mechanical stop mechanism interferes with the OIS. Perhaps the aperture ring located switch plus OIS adds excess bulk. Perhaps added cost or time to design another aperture ring layout was unacceptable. Whatever the reason, there are very likely engineering and commercial trade offs that may not be desirable.

New "pro" zooms are coming with marked aperture rings. They will likely be very costly and bulky.
