Look through the lens. When you adjust the aperture ring, do the blades actually move? You should have a big circle at the widest aperture (1.8) and a tiny circle at the other extreme. If that is not happening, you have a problem with the lens.

No - looking through the lens (no adapter) and I don't see any blades at all - no matter the setting. I guess this supports the theory that the lens is busted and always wide open.

I wasn't clear if I was meant to be able to see the aperture blades. Thanks for clearing that up.
