I thought these old Pentax 110 lenses had the aperture in the body? Do these need to be used wide open on the Q?

Oh ya just remembered why I never bought the adapter, this is true, the aperture was built into the body and the shutter was built into the lenses if I can remember correctly, you would have to shoot wide open I think at all times...

It is true that the camera body shutter also forms the aperture opening. So the lenses would have to be used wide open. So what? The lenses are all f2.8 and the Q doesn't like to go past f4. Dof isn't a problem & the electronic shutter should cover it with the 1/8000. Seems fine to me.

I have three 110 lenses so far, but the price of the 110 to Q adapter is holding me back...
