Interchangeable camera lens


An interchangeable camera lens includes a main barrel for holding a diaphragm and optical elements, wherein the optical elements define an optical axis (a), a diaphragm rotating ring, rotatable by way of a rotational movement about the optical axis (a), for setting the diaphragm to different f-number values, and a click-stop device. The click-stop device interacts with the diaphragm rotating ring in such a way that the click-stop device is effective in an active work position and the diaphragm rotating ring is therefore rotatable in a stepped manner.
