That's normal. The I-61 aperture ring always feels loose (did on all of mine, anyway) but works fine. Does yours have click stops and 10 blades? If so it's the "good" old version. Try working a few drops of lighter fluid into the focus helix and surprise yourself

It has 10 blades, but no click stops. I've had a closer look at it, it had dust inside

When I took a pic, there was a lot of bloom / light glow. I guess I'll have to return it.

Another strange thing is that the I-61 and the old J-8 have their marks on the bottom :

Is it because of my adapter ?
