Thank u all for the replies.

I'll try the same npw with my old fa* 24-70f2.8 which I also rarely-seldom use.

I think now I know what the spring is for: keeping the aperture open in 'A' position of aperture-ring to provide ttl.

None of that makes any sense. It sounds like you are looking at the lock that keeps you from accidentally going into A mode when setting f/22.

Removing de tiny bal which enables blocking/locking/clicking might not change anything else, I know now.

Thx 🙏😀
