the Qkonica 25mm lens

So I've been at it again and adapted a lens from a Konica Revio CL APS point and shoot to Q mount. It works best as a macro lens and with focus peaking and zooming in for focusing.

For more samples and info you can see it at my blog

Yes I'm already working on a 35mm f2.8 that should give better results (196mm equivelent) as well as a 5mm 2.8 which will be a 28mm equivelent but that one is proving tough as the registration distance places it inside the Q mount

A wide prime would be lovely indeed!

I wonder whether Pentax has some nice 2.0 lenses planned...

Those photos look pretty damn sharp to me. Can you post a how-to?

Wow. You going beyond a pancake with that 5mm lens. Not many lenses the Q can't handle with its ultra short registration distance. Going inside the mount has to be tight as there isn't much room there.

Have to try this later on.

Looking great! I guess you can get old PnS cameras cheap and try to adept their lenses to the Q. I'm still waiting for my Q body cap to arrive to be able to mod an Smena 8m lens to Q.
