Pentax Q with new Pentax DA40 XS!

Couldn't resist this shot of the two together. Wonder when there will be a Q pancake?

Cool! Now all that remains is for us to see the Q with the lens cap lens

is there any better comparison to show just how small the Q is? a lens as small and diminutive as the 40 XS and the Q is still noticeably smaller. this photo reminds me of the old nikon fish eye. the one that could only be used with mirror lock up. even on a big nikon F it seemed to be swallowing the camera. this looks the same.

And they say the 40mm is an awkward focal length on APSC...
