Beeing a Q user for quite some time now, I thought I'll try to upload a picture here. It was taken with the 01 lens in southwest Germany, F/2.5, 1/80 sec, ISO 125.
Sehr schoen!

Thanks to all .

I was positively surprised by the quality of the image of 'the navel of the Moon' (single shot, 6600/44 FF equivalent).
See e.g. Tycho (crater), Moon_landing_map.
I expected worse results due to the small sensor and diffraction.
What I found especially impressive is that you really see the Moon "moving" on the screen - so shutter speed should kept high enough.
The illumination by the sun was of some help here .
Shadows in streak of light helped to increase contrast.

Terrestrial shooting is even harder.

The small sensor of the Q is very demanding.
I always try to stay below f4, ISO 200 and faster than 1/100s.
However, this is not always possible - especially when using an additional converter.
Dust and flicker in the atmosphere is also a problem.
Aiming at a target is the first task, finding correct sharpness the next.
The time lag after release is also not really of help (when e.g. birding).
The use of a remote-control is necessary, as pressing the trigger manually causes too much vibrations.

The editing of this picture might already be a bit excessive. It is just meant to show that it is possible to get enough detail - sometimes.

So, just for fun, Q + Pentax 2x-L + FA* 600 again (after heavy sharpening):

What's the approximate distance to the bird?
About 5-10m (5m is the min. focus distance of the FA* 600), the last bird was farther away in the top of a tree.

A few shots from Monday

This Monday I went to the City of Arts & Sciences in Valencia with my K-5 II, Q and K1000 (yeah, I think people thought I was crazy). These are some of the shots I took with my Q.

Christian_o Those are really amazing pictures.
Im posting a couple too from last night, taken in the Barranco District of Lima - Peru. They`re straight off the camera since I have no PP software and no idea how to work it anyways.
I think im starting to get the hang of it.

Just realized the Third picture isnt looking too sharp, dunno if due to camera shake or perhaps I messed up while focusing.

I love the lines, the architecture is certainly striking as are your pictures.

A very quick snapshot: (Q, 01 lens)



Another very quick snapshot, this time with the 06 lens, handheld shooting out a car window:



I took several others but the shutter speed was way too slow for hand-holding (1/20 sec). I was sort-of surprised I managed to get this one as clearly as I did.
