Not so much. See my post here for further insights. I'm selling it if you're interested...

I was going to get an adapter for my Q but the IQ of these images is not too appealing.

I'm hunting other glass now. Maybe a fujinon 25/0.85 or a Canon-tv 25/0.78

As I said in another thread (with pics), the Fujian 35/1.7 is worth it I think. About $20. Soft focus at 1.7, decently sharp at 2.4 (not at the edges, but probably if stopped down a bit more).

Hi, I really like your setup with the Seagull 3x magnifier. Have been trying to find the magnifier for my newly acquired Q and not sure where to find the right model. Could you tell us where you go it?
Thanks a lot,
Andy

So, Clinton, did you win this bid? Great deal if you know how to mount it!

Nope. I don't even have a Q yet, but that particular lens has no aperture control or focus control. I probably would have bought it on a novelty for $50.

Some folks around here (impossible lens club?) would take that as an extra challenge!

I found the Fujinon 0.85 25mm lens in an estate auction, I bought the Q after that just so I could try it out! Just waiting for my C - P/Q adapter to arrive now.

How good of a deal did you get?

I also have a fujinon now. It's images thus far are actually pretty sharp considering what it is

I got a 13.5-81mm TV zoom lens. No name, Made in Japan, I believe it's similar to Tamron made.
I had got very good result from it.
Very sharp.

I believe most of the TV zoom (canon, fuji, sony) are good.
Try to get one with macro function. (you can turn into macro mode with the zoom ring) It is very useful.

Inspired by the OP, I just ordered a Tamron 3.5-8mm zoom, this one is f/1.4. Not quite as sexy as f/1.0, but hoping it will work out okay.
