I rented a lens this weekend and upon mounting it noticed the aperture ring doesn't stop at T2.4 but moves lower than it (according to the marker). The lens in the black canon 8-64 for 16mm. Is there a problem with the marking on the lens or the aperture ring or is this normal?

It's pretty usual, same with a focus ring moving out past infinity.
