If the lens is marked "MD" then there is a kick on the aperture ring to lock it at f/22.

This is so that when the cameras that have shutter priority or Program mode are in use , the camera can select the appropriate aperture for correct exposure .

I'm not at home at the moment , but can post a picture later to show the lug I mean ?

Does your lens have this feature ?

Although it does sound as if you can turn the aperture ring ?

Thank you for replying

It is marked as an MD lens. The aperture is not locked at f/22 by the aperture lock switch. I can turn the aperture ring, it is just that that doesn't open up the aperture beyond f/22 — it is suck on f/22.

I attached pictures of the back of the lens below.
