Yesterday I had a chance to use my Pentax Q with the F* 600mm F4.

You can see the pics in this thread:

I also took the Q + the Tamron 90 Macro for a spin. This is the second Tamron 90 Macro I've owned, and I had similar results with the first one I had. To me this is such a great combo because the Tamron 90 Macro is super sharp, quite long (effective 495mm length), super small and light, and it has an aperture ring.

Luckily got my Q7 with 01 in my coat pocket - so I got it out to capture the rising sun in all its glory!

Nice pic, Phil! Love the leading line of the rail. I also love the line of cars to the right. Without them, that would have been a large dead area. Good job of seeing and reacting!

This photo is a result of using the high contrast digital filter together with bleached bypass (set on the front dial). The Q may suffer in the IQ department in low light but it certainly does not suffer in the fun department when the sun goes down!

I am using a 28mm Nikon lens with a Fotodiox filter here.

I did not alter the photo other than the size of it. Straight from the SD card.

I took a normal colour, no filter, photo of this, and used the post processing in the camera on the normal colour photo.
I wanted B&W but can't seem to do it so chose Bold Unicolour and chose a colour that didn't appear much in the pic!
I quite liked it anyhow. It certainly reflects how grim it looked in Lancaster, UK on Saturday afternoon.

Nice one; emphasizes the glare from the wet street and is very atmospheric.

Very nice! I like the punchy contrast of the Bold Monochrome of your street image.

Shot with the Q7+03 fisheye.

I should have gotten a tripod but I did this shot quick. This spider set up its web on my deck last night. I quickly grabbed my Q7 with the 03 fisheye and took some shots. I had to boost the ISO to 6400 and use spot metering to get the shutter speed to 1/80th of a second. I also used my iPhone as a light source. The front of the lens was less than an inch from Sheba (my name for her).

The challenge is that holding the iPhone in one hand and the Q7 made good camera stabilization techniques difficult...but I like the shot anyway.

Shot using RAW format and did some post-processing in Lightroom.


Yes, the best-kept secret about the 03 lens is that it is a macro lens!

Testing the Q with a flash

I set up the Q with the 02 lens and a Sigma EF-610DGST flash to see how it captures Hummingbirds. I used the Bright color setting on the quick dial and did just minimum processsing in lightroom. Simply amazing is all I can say about this camera. I've got plenty of of very detailed pix of hummingbirds in flight taken with my K-30, but to me these pix from the Q are just stunning with the color saturation right out of the camera.

Nice shots and I agree with the tamron 90/2.8 it's a winner on all fronts for use with the Q(or any body . The IQ started to suffer w/ Q + 90/2.8 on 160mm of bellows only at full extension and even then it was sharp and contrasty just PF highlights and getting light on subject was the real issue.
