I really don`t understand why Fuxi`s X lenses are so inconsistent about their aperture rings. The aperture has to be selected in 3 different ways let say using 14, 18-55 and 27 mm lens.

I can barely understand the 27mm having no aperture ring but I cannot at all understand why are the rings on 18-55 and 55-200 unmarked! The big advantage of dedicated and marked dials - you can check your setting just with a short glance at your camera from above whitout even switching on the camera!

The 27mm was supposed to be a 'pancake' lens - adding an aperture ring would increase the lens length by about a centimeter.

It is a pain having to check the settings in the camera, but they would have to come up with a really weird design to make it work for the two zooms. Because it's not mechanically coupled it would be particularly difficult.
