So I've had the Q for a few days now, but haven't had much time to take any "real" shots. My initial impressions are pretty good, it feels very solid despite it's small size. The 01 Prime lens is very nice, although I notice quite a bit of distortion on the RAW files (the camera corrects this automatically in the JPEG images).

I'm still feeling my way around the particulars, but so far so good!

indeed the 8,5mm prime have some noticeable distorsion. Pentax made a lens correction profile for adobe / apple.

And very nice the profile is, indeed (I use CS5). The in-camera JPEG correction works reasonably well, but crops the photo more, and doesn't correct as much of the barrel distortion as Adobe in CS5.

I'm glad you like your purchase. Now all you need is the 25mm f/1.1 Sonnetar lens for it

I don't see carrying an SLR and a single lens around as bulky. Then again, I shoot at the rennaissance festival and downtown Annapolis with a 4x5, so I might be crazy.
