    What is up with that lever on the side??

    I've owned 5 of these and never seen that before.

    Is this a pre-MC "auto rokkor" lens? If so, why don't they all have this thing?

    That lever was a feature of the second run of Auto Rokkors.

    Thanks a lot! Was trying to figure it out as I couldn't find a lens with the lever on google images.
