    Lens aperture ring question!

    Hey Everyone!

    This might come off as a silly question, but the thought had entered my head and I'll thought I'll ask it here.

    My M9 and Leica lenses have long been sold now, and proved quite profitable I might add! I still have my ZM lenses, which I happen to like a lot, but not used in a very long time. Is it better to store the lenses with the aperture ring closed down or wide open, or does it not matter at all. What are your thoughts on this?

    Thank in advance.

    Hey Po! It does not matter at all... I leave mine at whatever my last setting was.

    Yeah, doesn't really matter. Though it might be a good idea to exercise the focus and aperture rings from lock-to-lock a few times once in a while. Same thing with camera shutters/controls.
