My Q family - needs suggestions !!

Current:
- Q + Prime 01: $340 from a local shop
- 32 GB Class 10 Transcend SD card: $27
- Fotodiox K to Q mount: $35
- Carrybag + LCD protector: $15

Planning to buy:
1) Tele-wide finder: Seems quite easy to get in the US. Quite hard in my country...
2) Wasabi battery + charger: ( Amazon.com: Wasabi Power Battery and Charger Kit for Pentax D-LI68, D-LI122 and Pentax Q, Q10, Optio A36, Optio S10, Optio S12, Optio VS20: Camera & Photo )
3) M42 to Q mount: which version should I get and link please? (i'm from Vietnam so quite hard to buy the accessories)
4) Pentax DA 35mm F2.4 AL: cos I heard this lens is of incredible value and saw some nice picture taken with it in Vietnamese forums - would this lens + adapter perform much better than the Prime 01 and in which type of photography?
5) Which M42 lens is nice for macro or telephoto and what skills do I need to pull off those critical MF?
6) Any accessories/ lens that you guys would recommend me to get to compliment the Q family.

Many thanks for your time!

Can't really compare the 01 8.5mm prime to a 35mm lens. Totally different range. On the Q the 01 has a standard angle of view and he 35mm will have a telephoto field of view. If I wanted a 35 for the Q and a macro would consider buying the Pentax 35 macro. More money but dual uses. Doubt the 35 2.4 is better than this lens.

No idea which Q>M adapter to use. Could buy the Pentax K>M adapter and fit into your Q>K adapter. This would be a big plus if you are going to buy the Pentax Q adapter with shutter built in.

Definetly need extra batteries. 3 will not get me thru a complete day. Stock up.
thanks
