Was wondering if someone can tell me..when you take your EOS lens off the camera is the aperture wide open or is it set at whatever the last aperture setting was on? I have an older film camera that I'm playing with and I have an EOS adapter for it. However, I cannot change the aperture as there is no manual aperture ring on an EOS lens. So if I'm stuck with shooting wide open I'd like to know it.

Um, I'm pretty sure it is stored as wide open. However, if you take off the lens while holding the depth of field preview button, then the aperture will store as whatever aperture it was set to on the camera.
