Finally got my hands on a Pentax Q

I did a visit into the London, ON Canada Henrys store and looked at the Pentax Q. It is so... small but feels very solid. I did not really get a chance to go through the menus to see how easy it is to use but overall feel is very high quality. If I ever get some money and need a upgrade in my compact camera department, this will be the one to get.

The price would be nice to come down even more then the price reduction just posted. The combination of a fast prime lens and D-slr like control design makes this design that works for me. Getting an K to Q mount would be great to use my older Pentax lenses on it as well. Seeing some of the nice macro work done on the Q is a strong selling point for me. Maybe someday..............

I also looked at the K5. Very nice...!! Nice upgrade from my current K-m. One can dream.

Glad you got to handle a Q. It is a very special camera that hasn't received as much praise as it deserves. It took a lot of courage for Pentax to build it. Love my Q.

The K5 is a super camera also. Considering one of them next. Hope you get both one day.
