Pentax Q Adapter question

Hi All.

As per the recommendations I purchased the genuine Pentax Q adapter. I do not yet have my Q7, its on the way therefore I have no way to test it, but I'm puzzled. The aperture appears to be stopped down and it does not seem to open as I change the settings. Is that normal? Does it only open when on a Q? I've never used a leaf shutter so its somewhat of a new technology for me.

Thanks all.

Clueless.

The leaf shutter is a shutter, not the aperture diaphragm. It will open up all the way when mounted on your camera, and the aperture ring on the adapter will control the aperture level on the lens.

Thanks, very useful.

The downside is the lack of tripod mount...
