Maybe Pentax/Ricoh should make a Q module for GXR body. (of course niche product / niche product = approximately seven sales).

Let's hope the ur-Q's firmware update (I think we're expecting one for the Q-to-K adapter, right?) improves AF lock, adds focus peaking, and better adapted lens support.

There are actually several youtube videos posted that show focus peaking on the Q10 as well as the menu selection for it. I'm hoping this will come to the Q via a firmware update...we'll see.

here's the first one showing the menu selection at 0:10

as well as the one posted earlier, also showing menu selection at 0:10 and the feature in action

Gah...replied to the wrong thread...

A peaking panacea??

How many people who want peaking have actually tried it? IMO MFA is better. In fact peaking without MFA is useless.

It's available only for pre-order right now, and should start shipping in October.

Handling-wise, it's basically the same camera. The AF is in fact a bit better, not that it sucked on the original Q or anything. While I do like the new looks (and especially the red version of the camera), I'd say that overall, the Q10 feels a bit more plasticky. However, given that it's supposed to have better IQ, and considering that it's only about $100 more than its predecessor, I think it's a good addition to the Q lineup, assuming that anyone in the US actually cares.

Have you seen this?

Thank you for your reply.

I have a current choice of:

waiting for the Q10 at $600

Black Q with 01 lens at $350

Black Q with 02 lens at $$500

You have handled the Q10. I have no problems with a "plastic" camera. Is there a different sense of solidness between the Q and Q10?

Are any of the changes in the Q10 going to be implemented as a firmware update in the Q? focus peaking? menu setting of SR? Will the original Q work with the shutter in the K adapter?

Is the Q10 kit worth the $100 over the Q with 02 zoom ?

(note: I already have an 01 lens.)

Thank you.
