I am a street guy, the Q is da bomb

Cardinal rule No. 1
It is with me all the time.
My Q and 01 prime lenses is either in my pocket, in my bag or in my hand. The AF is unbelievable, The build quality is excellent. I love shooting in RAW then using Silkypix to PP. I have pimped it out with a leather finger strap (goes around my pinkie), Schott glass LCD protecter, Aki Leather skin, Yashica OVF, a 40.5 mm UV filter and silver hood.

Looks good. I have the same OVF and enjoy using it, particularly in bright sunlight. I use a Wii wrist strap instead of the pinky cuff you're using. The JJC hood is a very nice alternative at a reasonable price to the OEM hood, have you purchased squeeze caps for it yet?

I have the squeeze caps but don't use them as I feel the UV filer and hood provides enough protection.

I like the squeeze caps better than the screw in metal cap that came with the hood. I don't use UV filters unless its blowing sand or similar conditions so I use the caps.

Congrats. Maybe an 01 will fall into my lap someday. Enjoy your shooting. I got one for my wife so she could capture moments with the kids. She is afraid to touch my camera, especially after she dropped my old 5N(though it still works just fine). She's much less intimidated by the Q.

I believe it is the equivalent of Dog’s Bollocks.

American slang from the 90s. It seems to be making a comeback of late. You are correct, da bomb basically means amazing or excellent. You weren't force fed reruns of "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air"(Will Smith)?

It is on Freeview from time to time, can't say I've ever watched a full epi though. "Enemy of the State" and "I am Legend" are more my thing!! The Q seems to have a very loyal following, but I've never seen on "in the flesh" (That's not another Will Smith film is it?)
