Does not fit as in "will not mount" or it mounts but does not register. The ME as is K110D are both "K" mount cameras so it should mount in the usual way. Suggest you show us a photo of the lens mount.

I had the same problem using a non-Pentax A zoom lens (with a K-mount) on my K5. I discovered that the aperture lever and the guard at the rear of the lens were a bit too long and the guard in particular hit something inside the body whenever the lens is rotated to achieve correct register. Could it be that you are having the same problem?

P.S.

There is no adapter to solve this problem unless you use an extension tube between the body and the zoom lens.

Here are before and after pictures of the mount of my Vivitar 75-210mm lens. You can see the flange protecting the aperture lever is far longer than normal (and far longer than it needs to be). My father-in-law helped me cut it down. If left intact the flange will not allow the lens to be mounted on any Pentax SLR from the MZ series onward (it's the power-zoom contacts, which are now AF motor contacts, that block it).

I got it fix. I removed the flange protecting the aperture lever.
