Still working on taming my "little beast". After a week with it things are starting to fall into place a bit. It sure is a lot different than the K5

Rain showers were gentle enough to be caught by some large leaves, and steady enough that the Q could catch them too

Many thanks, filoxophy. I wonder if it's only an imperfect command of idiom that led the owners to display 'OK gifts' or if 'OK' means something else. Here are a couple from today.

I've recently been to Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.
Although the weather was (very) warm, it often had a haze in the air, I guess you can't get round that.... I'll upload a few more over time as I sort through them. It's a gorgeous place.

From the glamor of London to my secluded backyard in the backwaters of the Midwest in the USA...

...note - the Sharpie was shot through two panes of thermopane window glass but it was there so I pulled the trigger.

I recently got the Q7 on Woot and immediately tested it on the 2015 Indian Scout that I had picked up (it's a press bike):

I had the Scout for a five day pizza tour of the Northeast, from Boston to Baltimore. As you can see, the Scout has no room for luggage, and I'd hate to sully its look with a tank bag, so I carried all my clothing and camera gear (eighteen pounds worth) on my back for five days. I normally carry a second DSLR body or K-01 as backup, but I didn't have room for one on this trip.

The Q7 is a big step up in IQ from the original Q. So much so that I felt confident enough to bring the Q7 with 01 Prime and 08 Fisheye as the sole backup to my main camera, the K-3 with DA* 16-50 F2.8. Yup, if the K-3 flapped its mirror to its untimely demise or the DA* 16-50mm F2.8's SDM motor failed, I was confident that the Q7 would be able to step in and take magazine-worthy photos. I'd have to think on my feet and likely end up with different photos, but I knew that it could be done.

Thankfully, the K-3 and DA* performed flawlessly. But I'm still thinking about bringing a Q7 kit on a future trip as the main camera. Just for the challenge of it.

Love Q for close up work because of the cropping factor. This is 21mm Ltd with Extension Tubes mounted on Q for K mount adapter on an original Q.

Great images... When I was a kid, I dreamed of taming an "original" Indian motorcycle like my neighbor's. <smile>... Thank you.

IMHO... a Q7 travel kit, worthy of your consideration, might consist of...

01 Prime (you know it already):
06 Telephoto Zoom:
08 Wide Angle:

I utilized a Q7/01/06/08+4 battery kit on a recent trip, as my prime, with a K-3/DA10-17/DA15/DA20-40/FA77/HD1.4TC kit, as my backup.
I'm not sure I'd bet a potential saleable image on this priority, but things worked out OK for me and sure was a fun kit to use.

Cheers... M
Yup, that's a good kit. I'm always tempted by those special edition kits with all the lenses and leather case. I couldn't justify spending that kind of money for the original Q, but for the Q7 or Q-S1 it's just a matter of time before I cave.

The 5-15 wasn't quite long enough to make this turtle sunning himself on a small log stand out, but it captured the leaves pretty well.
