Generally a fairly competent review, although they forgot about diffraction in doing some of their tests. They also do not seem to "get" that its great for Macro and LONG telephoto work, particularly as it fits in my dSLR bag with its adapter in less space than any big lens. The comments by readers are the usual with several "it has to be horrible because it doesn't have a big sensor" comments (hint: buy an RX100 or a real full sized dSLR if that is what you need/want/believe will make you a great photographer) and some really good replies from real Q users.

Not a bad review. But it is noisey for candid closeups? Really?
Congratulations i83N on ordering a Q10.
thanks

Congratulations! I just got back from another outing with my new Q. The little button on the front is just an outstanding feature. I switched from B&W to Vivid Color in <1 second and back. Played with the fish-eye in a medium civic center during a Rock & Mineral show. Lots of fun and in a crowd with narrow isles it was a joy to use the Q instead of the K-5.

Dunno why they think Q and other Pentax cameras are noisy. All me and my brother hear about our K-5s is "Wow, that's quiet!" and "Did you actually take a shot?".

Meh review...

Video mode hard to start? How about my NEX-7 which is too EASY to take video? (Thankfully Sony finally put out a firmware patch to allow disabling of the button. Would rather be able to re-assign the button, but wtf.)

How's it compare to the Q?
How's the image stabilization with third-party lenses?
How's the focus-peaking?
How's the sensor read speed (do stills suffer the jellos when using the "digitial shutter" like they do on the Q?)
