Congratulations on your new camera. I looked the Q series up. They certainly look like a beautiful, tiny camera.

Arrgghhh. I just realised that I'm responding to a zombie thread.
Ah well. The things I said apply to the recent posts and posters too.
Nah, it was posted in earlier this year, so no Zombie...

Just a faint whiff of degradation. :unsure:

The thread was started 10 years ago, but I only got my Q a few months back & there's still plenty of life left in them.
So far I've used mine with Pentax Auto 110 lenses, c and d mount lenses, MFT lenses, M42 lenses and some home adapted pentaka mount biotars as well as a couple of the native lenses. Some of these are near impossible to adapt to anything else!
I must dig out some of the photos :)

I had a Q7 back a few years ago. My first Pentax anything and I see why a lot of people love that brand. I couldn't stick with it because I was one of those weirdos that really needs to have a viewfinder.

I was not the biggest fan of the SOOC JPGs, but get a RAW file for me and I loved it to pieces.

I've a Flickr album if anyone is interested:

A few more Q7 images, taken today (and cross-posted in the Remarkable Cars thread) - all taken with the 01 Prime lens - of a vintage Volkswagen Beetle I happened to see on the street. Old V.W.'s have classic lines - but so does the Q7, and its earlier and even more classic sibling, the Q.

Even with the relatively small sensor, the quality of the images my Q7 produces makes me happy.

The preceding images were processed in Nik's silver.efex, but this next one, a SOOC camera selfie, uses the Q7's in-camera 'Bold Monochrome' setting.

The Q7 is currently my physically smallest - and hence most easily pocketable - camera. I'm glad I had it with me today.
