But is there really a different aperture for the cloudy and sunny setting? for years they have had this switch, but there was no stop-down when you flipped the switch, no matter what the instruction manual said or what the specs claimed. If this version changed that, it would be great to know for sure! I'd order one right now if that was confirmed. Thanks!

Yes the lens stops down from f8 (cloudy) to f11 sunny.
