    Don't worry, the blades won't be stuck. Simply replace the lense onto the body and the blades will move out to wide open again. It happens even if your camera is in 'L' mode.

    As paraphrased off another forum.

    Don't be too concerned with nitty bitty details. You end up not enjoying your purchase, you become enslaved to it, rather than it becoming your slave

    cheers
    I think if you are using D SLR, you can try test shots, but not for film users like me right????

    Thanks firefox, this is something new to me. So I must make sure there is no oil on the blade.....
