Hello, I bought a Carl Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 along with a Yashica FX-D to use the lens with an adapter on my A7. However, I'm unfamiliar with the quirks of the C/Y mount. I noticed when the lens is off the camera the aperture closes slightly, even when set for f/1.4, but it opens fully as soon as I put it on the FX-D. Is this how the lens is supposed to operate or is something broken? I haven't bought the adapter yet, so I'm trying to figure out if there is an issue before I spend the money. Thanks!
