Latest Review Posted Pentax Q-S1
I have one of these with all the non-toy lenses plus the fish-eye and many other adapted lenses. I am constantly surprised at the high IQ for such a small sensor. I really appreciate the SR and the depth of field of the lenses. All the Q zooms are great. They make taking vacation pictures a joy, not a chore when carrying a heavy DSLR. The Pentax 110 lenses, adapted with a diaphragm, are excellent as well, especially the 50mm. A perfect match for quality C-mount lenses. The images do need careful PP, but will be very good up to ISO 400 in 12x16 in size. At ISO 800 and above they do lose resolution, but in a film-grain way, not in nasty artifacts. Table top photography is a snap, even hand-held, as is informal macro work. The quick dial has some good settings but isn't really very useful, some settings I would use are not supported. I can't get much improvement in RAW files, jpgs are very good for most purposes (assuming you set the WB and exposure. The viewscreen should be at least twice a fine pixel density, but is usable. When using APS-C or FF lenses with an adapter, the Q-s1 will mercilessly reveal their limitations. The ergonomics are worse than the Q-7: the Q-S1 dials on the front have sharp edges and the mode dial on top is easily moved by mistake.
