I guess so, although to put it in perspective,
I have an old Super-Ikonta folder
whose leaf shutter is still working
after more than 60 years.

The tiny shutters in the Q lenses
may not be quite as robust as that.
I hope they are! I still want to be able to mount them on my Q590 in the future.

Does that mean, in the future, we should be wary of Q's on the marketplace with v1.11 firmware and "very low shutter count?"

(Oh yeah, there's no mechanical shutter in the camera body...)
Perfect for selling "new" cameras yes!

Major bummer. I must say, that hasn't been my experience at all. 300 clicks since upgrade and zero issues except the Tone Expansion (which I didn't even know existed).
