Auto 110 to K-x

Stupid question maybe, but I have to ask. Will the Auto 110 lens fit the K-x? Seen some very nice Auto 110 lens on eBay and......Just wondering!

Thanks in advance for your info.

1) Auto 110 have its own bayonet, not K mount.
2) The registration distance of the 110 is too small, so even if you make your own adapter, it will be like using the lens with extensino tubes (the difference between the K mount and 110 registration distances), and it won't focus on infinity.
3) The apperture mechanism of the 110 system is part of the camera (though this is not a critical problem).

You could mount a 110 lens in reverse on a K mount lens to shoot macro (given a reverse adapter and the right step down rings).

There are a micro-4/3 adapter for 110 lenses, but no Pentax micro-4/3.

I expect A110 lenses to soar in price as M4/3'rs and NEX'rs discover them. Now is a good time to invest. Get in on the ground floor! Earn fabulous wealth on eBay! You could be the next Camera King!
