Weather has been crap this past few months, and I just got my Q7 and have been eager to take it out and get some photos. Winter really does make me lazy.

Q7+06
Winter like that would make me "lazy" too!

This was not as bad as a few days ago. Can't wait for summer though.

Great pics, are you dual wielding Q bodies? I've had that idea before as a super light weight dual body setup.

Yes for this trip I needed to conserve space so I took the Q and Q7 with 01, 02,03,06 lenses.
The pair allowed me to easily switch focal length by pulling the appropriate body/lens from one one small messenger bag.
Same charger and batteries made it very convenient. Packing it all in my carry on was a breeze.

Those shots bring back a lot of memories of living in the Chicagoland area during similar harsh winters and commuting by train into the Downtown Loop area for work. Here in Arizona the past week it has been in the upper 80's to mid 90's and my Canadian "snow bird" neighbors have been sitting in their houses with the air-conditioning going and say it is "Too HOT" for them to come out. They should see your photo's.

Yep it was super bad a few days ago, it snowed so much that the city essentially had to shutdown. No buses, shools etc. My street had a 5 foot tall snowbank on each end, nobody could drive out of their streets.

I don't know how tough the Q7 is, I kinda wish it had weather sealing.

Yeah, as I've said before, our daughter who lives in southern Calif says that she misses "weather".

We had a long weekend in Birmingham (UK)
All with the Q7 and 08 wide. I'm close to the point now that I could run with a Q7/08 compact if there was one!

Cathedral at night



A strange one this, it's from a windowsill inside a pub, looking at the cathedral above, the pub was an old theatre and the pic is mostly reflections from the inside of the pub.



A museum documenting the making of coffin fittings in it's old factory



A few of Birmingham Library, the largest in Europe. Mostly ultra modern, but a few old rooms - I liked it, spent two hours here just looking at nothing!





View from the library, 1/3 of the way up



St Martins church interior. I use a small jugglers bean bag, resting on anything I can find and jam the Q7 hard into it to get it stable for low iso, long shutter speed interior pics.

What shutter speed were you using?

When I took pictures last month inside a mission church (using a Q7+01), I found that the Q7's SR provided
all the stability I needed (of course, the 01 is a f/1.9 lens). I don't mean to demean the 08, just to point out
that the Q-7's SR makes a major contribution in this kind of photography.

Well the 08 at its widest is f3.7 so needs a lot more light. I don't have the raw files anymore and for some reason the exif has been striped. Most of the inside shots were about half a second. I often successfully hand hold the 08 to a fifth of a second as the SR does work very well.
It's horses for courses really a the 01 wouldn't have captured anywhere near the 08 fov. I do a lot of internal shots of museums, galleries and churches. If it wasn't for the 08 I'd be using a different camera.
