Looks good. What settings did you use for this shot? Was it stopped down on the adapter? Pentax adapter or another?

Pentax adapter, f5.6 give the best result with the 560/q7 as the diffraction will impact the shot more than you benefit from stopping down.

Borg 55 fl

This is a 250mm F/4.5 refractor telescope which is meant for wide field astro photography, but I found that this is a very high quality, light weight, hand-holdable 250mm lens that is very, very sharp when you nail the focus (not easy) with almost no CA due to its fluorite doublet lens. Being a doublet (i.e. just two lense elements), it's actually a pretty bright lens.
I use a BORG EOS adapter and a third party EOS-Q adapter, but they sell BORG K adapter, or even BORG Q adapter if that's what you want.

Giraffe, ISO 200, 1/800 sec, direct sun light. On a monopod.

Microscope Objective lens (Swift 4x) on the Q

A quick jackup with a 4x objective fitted into a hole drilled in an m42 camera body cap and fitted to the Q with my custom made M42 adapter. (Post 630) This adapter ends up shorter than the standard adapter (focusses beyond infinity on a standard lens) and this works well with the microscope objective lens. All images handheld, pped in gimp and not cropped. I think the Q is an ideal sensor for this. On my K01 there is vignetting and softness on the edges.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM on Q7

Twelve spotted skimmer, on Flickr


I borrowed this lens for a short while for testing, and I think it's good on Q7 (except that you cannot change iris once the lens comes off of Canon camera). This one was shot wide open at f/2.8.

You should put a picture with the lens atached
