I own just a Q10 and the 02 ...

... and there's no option on the poll for me.



Wouldn't get a second one (unless it was the most economical way to get the 01 Prime, AND I had the spare money. No spare money.)

Sorry Neil, did not think of that option. I got a 2nd Q because it was cheaper than buying the 02 lens by itself. Still haven't decided what to do with the 2nd body myself. It has not been used at all.

I had a Q with 01. Just like you, I bought the 2nd Q with 02 lens because it was cheaper than buying the 02 lens by itself. I have since purchased the 06.

I will buy a third Q system body when there is either a Q with EVF support or a Q module for the GXR.

I'm totally in for a third Q body with an optional or built in eye level EVF. I'd also like a higher res LCD if there's no tradeoff in operational speed.

I got my second own Q and there is finally a printed manual in the Swedish retail packaging!
The first two I've seen didn't have that.
Typical - camera is phased out, printing of user guide commences....

Can't change my vote but I did buy a second Q. I really like this camera and just wanted a backup body just in case anything happened to the first one.

Both my first Q (for myself) in november 2012 after the price reduction. Got it with the 02 lens (in stock and I wanted a zoom lens since I shoot 99% primes on my K-5). I liked it very much so I got another Q for Christmas to my girlfriend. She got the 01 prime, so now we can borrow from eachother Both are black, since I think the white/beige looks a bit weird in most pictures.

I never thought I would buy a Q in the first place.......now here I am thinking about a second one.

I am getting ready for spring when I can get outside and shoot - gives me something to do in winter. This is now my setup to get those sly Kingfishers that stay across the river from me for years - I think this might work. But.....I don't know if I want to take this all apart and put it back together when I want to use my Q as a walk around with the native lenses........

Hmmm. Never one to distract you from buying another cam but - how about a quick release instead of the spacer plate?

Great minds think alike!

After I posted this and starting thinking about it, I am going to work on a different spacer setup. I enjoyed putting this together so far, and look forward to the challenge of taking it a bit farther. I'll have to take a look in the barn tomorrow to see what I have around.

Is there actually a Q in there someplace?

Very nice. I do see a Q in that mass of serious-looking black stuff at the back!

What do you think of the Swivi-Viewfinder (or Carryspeed, or Flashpoint?)? I wasn't sure one of those could be adjusted low enough to fit the Q screen, but it seems you've done it with the spacer.
EDIT: never mind - just saw your other thread where you actually answered that! Thanks!
