Pentax Q and Kern Switar 10mm f/1.6 lens

Will be back with more info later but key points below:

1. Lens is very good

2. It's heavy and small

3. IQ is very good from the lens when you set your custom image settings ot +3-4 contrast and +4 sharpness. ( This seems to be the case for all non-Q lenses that are used )

4. Bokeh is nice

So far very happy with the lens. Like it much better then my CCTV lens which I returned.

Here are some sample photos:

#4 is the sharpest. Can you also post the aperture you used on each of these? Were they all wide open at 1.6? The first three look that way.

Hi, I think the first photo is f/2 while the #4 image is f/4? I'm not sure as the f stop isn't recorded. I'll take the same image at different f/stops and post back

Yes, that is tough to remember after a while - you need to take notes after you take the shots, or you'll forget.
