My Q arrived yesterday...

And all I can say is WOW!

I knew it was small, but never realized it was THAT small.

It's smaller than my point and shoot! (Lumiz ZS-6)

I have not had time to play much with it yet (will do that this coming weekend), but the few snaps I've taken up to now have really impressed me! It's going to be a great "little brother" to my K5d, and I'm pretty sure in many situations it may even upstage it when I don't want to lug around a full size dSLR!

I guess now I just have to order the fisheye and the zoom

Congrats! Same time mine arrived.

Love that last shot! I have a old (defect ) Pentax 67 sitting somewhere that I might use in a similar comparison shot.

GREAT that your own precious Q arrived. Just Remember: Every serial number is unique, nobody owns a Q like yours ;-)

Cool images, especially the one with the big camera/lens/flash. Good job ve2vfd. Not only is the Q smaller than your Pana I bet you find it considerably quicker to use. No P&S controls on the Q. It acts more like your big DSLR. Don't forget the firmware update for camera and lens. The Q settles down and becomes an over achiever with the updates. Have fun.

Pat, that's a nice size comparison between the Q and K5D. But hardly fair since you did not bother to extend the Q's flash!
