Pentax Q Compendium

I've been blogging about the Q since I bought it last summer. I've compiled the most informative posts on a single page - the Pentax Q Compendium - What Blog is This?: Pentax Q Compendium

I hope that some of you find the information helpful/informative as you play with your Qs....

John, your observations are always helpful, and the compilation is timed perfectly as I contemplate pulling the Q trigger.

Hilarious! You have a great writing style. I hope those magazines you freelance for appreciate that, along with your photography!

BTW, your link in the compendium for "Diana Takes Aim" is broken (going to a local file).

John, Great blog and wonderful articles!

The Q's metal construction coupled with the new upgrade in focus peaking got me interested. The $199 price actually got me to purchase on New Years and it was delivered a couple of weeks later. Now after about 3 weeks of us, I do like it. Still figuring it out, for low ambient light shots in the evening along with night shots. Size wise its perfect for traveling. I would like a wide angle lens.

I have been looking for a leather wrist strap - the thing is so small, I worry about it slipping out of my grasp. It lives in a shoe shine mitt liberated from a business stay at Marriott.

A nuncience is the 01 focal ring - I don't know when its at infinity as it just keeps turning. Also, a slide on/off (like the flash) would be better than a the little button. But these are pretty minor.

That's one of the few gripes I have.. is there a way to set focus to infinity and leave it set there??
