True, the 110 lenses are fixed at F2.8. The lenses have no diaphram built in. The aperture was adjusted internally in the A110 body.
Lensbaby aperture discs fit snuggly inside Q-110 adapter and allow aperture adjustment. The F11 disc stops the 2.8 Pentax lens down to ~ F4. The lenses are sharper this way. Next want to try F5.6.

I think previously, the only P 110 to Q lens adapter was from Kipon. IIRC, this one's considerably less expensive.

More accessories from different makers is a good sign for the Q system.

Some day, I'll get around to making some aperture disks and retesting my P110 lenses with the Q with Peaking -- should make a difference -- these lenses would be sweet on the Q if they were a bit sharper, and they probably would improve stopped down a bit.

I have the above Fotodiox 110 adapter and it has some play in the mount, which becomes excessively apparent with the heavier 70mm lens.

Have any of you tried the KIPON adapter vs Fotodiox (or clone) ?

From pictures it looks like the KIPON has retaining spring clips in the mount, which the Fotodiox doesn't. Curious to see if it holds the 70mm any better ??
