My Pentax Q and ultra tele image made the Pentax US facebook page!

pic shows Q/ DA*300 f4/ Pentax red dot scope combo. 2nd image is eagle taken with the combo. Proud to be on the Pentax facebook page. It was a big surprise. Please visit their page and like & share.

Hope this helps increase interest in ultra telephoto Q photography. Might speed up the introduction of the Pentax made Q<PK lens adapter too. I really want that adapter!

thanks

I notice someone commented that your setup was "stupid" because the sensor was small.

Hi barondla,

Nice!! Congrats !!!

I too hope that this encourages them to step up the introduction of their K to Q adapter if it has the internal shutter. It was supposed to be set for an intro in Spring, and it's already sprung. I'd like to be able to do some outdoor bug shooting with the Q this season.

Yeah they just don't get it. One thought a superzoom bridge camera would do as well. I must have missed the superzoom that has a DA*300 f4 quality lens built in. Some comments were more worried about my anatomy. Lol. Sigh. Others seem to get the idea and are interested. Just proves the Q is ahead of the curve for many people.
Still glad Pentax posted my pics. Seems to working well for them. Has increased interest in my area for sure. Have 4 friends with red dot scopes ( 2 with the Pentax one). Now where is that Pentax made Q<Pk adapter with built in shutter?
thanks
