    I'm getting a Q!

    Found a deal on Gumtree I couldnt say no to.
    I've been humming and harring for a while now about a Q; but I figure I can use it to replace the K100D and the wifes rubbish little Fuji P&S.

    And then I found this pic and it sealed the deal.



    Can't wait. Havent been this excited about a camera in ages.

    Yeah, I thought it was a reasonable preposition, too (With, not Of.)

    The Q can take a K mount lens and there was a post about a Pentax 1200mm f/8 yesterday... That crops to a bit over 6000mm

    This is with the K to Q adapter and some results:













    It's not a bad little camera and gets some odd looks with a large lens up front.

    Best regards

    I was curious about Q image quality; had seem some unflattering tests, however your shots look excellent.

    Thanks for posting

    Quick thread update.

    Recently the Q got updated to the new Q7.
    Faster and noticeably better image quality.
