Theoretically 75mm would be equivalent to 300-375 depending on which Q variant you use so I would say yes. The lens is Hoya Pentax but I don't hold that against it...

You should put a picture with the lens atached
OK, here's BORG 55FL assy on BORG EOS adapter on EOS-Q adapter on Q7.

When I was taking pictures with this setup on a monopod in the zoo, one of the volunteer guides asked me what I was doing, because he has "never seen something like that, and it looks so... weird"

Do you have any further thoughts about the quality of the lens?If it is good one should be great telephoto for the Q series.

Won the above lens in an ebay auction.
Brand spanking new so had a little play on both original Q and QS-1...
Neighbour's bug hotel (about 10m away) with Q

Ricoh Rikenon P 105mm 2.8 macro -- K mount on the Q

AKA as Kiron or Vivitar.
A recent purchase of what is regarded as a cult lens and is performing very well on the K01. Looking good on the Q too!!
The closeup is an uncropped image of an aphid on a rosebud stem. That was getting close to 1;1 magnification. Of course with the small Q sensor when it is enlarged to monitor size that is even more magnification than on apsc.

Cross-posting to MaQro club thread.

With a third party FD-Q adaptor. This specific shot was taken with f/8 on a tripod and a cheap third-party hood.

Q-S1 w/MC Rokkor 58/1.4

Pentax Q-S1 w/MC Rokkor 58/1.4 x 4.6 crop factor = 267mm FF. The lens was stopped down some as it is quite glowy when shot near wide open.

Q-S1 w/Tamron SP 60-300 Adaptall

Pentax Q-S1 w/Tamron SP 60-300mm. Shot on tripod at 300mm = equivalent 1380mm on full frame. No crops.




Hundreds of tiny critters in the yellow, but easier to see the ones on the white petals.




Switched to Macro on the lens and moved in to where I could focus again.




Moved in even closer for maximum magnification (1:4), and a fly showed up.















After shooting a full set of these, I believe the lens is sharpest at 5.6. I need to try birding with it, and will shoot the moon next opportunity.

Q-S1 w/Tamron SP 60-300 Adaptall

More from the Pentax Q-S1 w/Tamron SP 60-300 at 300mm = to 1380mm FF when used with this sensor. Shot in RAW and edited of course, but I remain amazed at how sharp this lens is.

At f/5.6



This was at f/6.3 and was sharper than the 5.6 version. If you open the pic on Flickr you can just make out the text on the grey pole to the right.



The same at 60mm = 276mm on FF:




Mockingbird at 300mm = to 1380mm FF:

Great results rmcnelly! The fly close ups are especially fine. Not easy shooting.
Thanks for sharing and adding to the data base.

#3! Are these tiny yellow bugs with beady eyes hiding in the yellow part of the flower? I'd never have thought that these things existed.

Yes, hundreds of them, and easier to see on the white petals. I've been told they are "Thrips":

Q-S1 w/Tamron SP 60-300 Adaptall

Duplicate post from the show your Q pics thread.


Q-S1 and Tamron SP 60-300mm Adaptall lens, shot on a monopod on a breezy day. More keepers than I thought.






















Severe crop, just caught the eagle at the edge of the frame.




Severely backlit, but shot in RAW so was able to pull some color out of the wing.
