Just got my Q

Pentax finally released Q in China last week, just bought from a local dealer in Beijing, they told me I was the first buyer to buy the Q.

My Q is in white color, because I think it will be grabbed by my wife soon and never return to me...

Well, it is really an interesting little thing, the lens is so small and light weight. It feels so good and solid in my hand except the dial button is a little bit out of control but I m trying to get familiar.

Today‘s weather was not good so maybe later I will post some pics for you

Here are some pic for my new toy!

How do you rate the build quality of the Q vs the Canon S95?

To me, they are on the some level but different feel.

S95 has a slim and thinner body shell with metal feel.

Q has a plastic feel (not in a bad way) on the back and front is nicely cover by some material. It feels better in my hand and more solid than S95 due to the body size.

The button on the back of the Q has a better feel when you press it, it's kind of "confirmed" feel if you know what I mean

I am not a big fan of the "wheel" on canon's camera, maybe because I am a nikon and pentax user for a long time. never used a canon dslr.

so basically both are good quality and just different feel to me.

edit:
I am a little worried about the Flash when it pumps up, I think it may be broken easily if you forget to push it back, but a good design!
