Some Q10 shot examples posted (incl 06 tele zoom)

Hi All,

Not yet mentioned here, so I thought I'd post. There are some Q10 example shots with the 01,02, and 06 Quality Line lenses posted on the Pentax jp site.


IMO, the 06 tele zoom is looking good! The shots are at f4 and f4.5, so not wide open. . . but they seem very sharp, with nice bokeh, and exhibit excellent CA/PF control IMO, especially in the shot of the glasses, where I would have expected to see some.

Nothing here to change my mind to get the 06 as soon as it's available. . .

Looking good indeed. I struggled in the end to justify the Q, but the addition of the 06 lens helps to make a better case for the system. Really looking forward to seeing what the wide angle ends up being.

There was another thread that brought up these sample shots, so I'll just echo my thoughts there:

The picture of the girl is fantastic for a compact sensor. That 06 lens is really quite good.

The sharpness on the 06 is surprising!!!

I can't wait to get my hands on it.

Thanks for posting, I hadn't seen those. The 06 wasn't really enticing me, but that looks quite good!

Q10 looks to have a bit better color, also. A weakness of the Q, I think.

I'm happy with the samples, ill try the 06 when it comes out.

Seeing some color posterization in the full sized images in things like the upper corners of the background of the table of glasses image, and the blue shirt. Likely to be in the original, or a product of the JPG compression used for the web?
