Q7 Manual Available on Japan Site

If you want to get a preview of what the Q7 can do you can download the manual at

I was interested to see if there were any changes to the Flash function, but it appears no new functionality was added.

Functions such as MF Peaking and using a K-Mount lens are now in the manual, where they were only mentioned in the K adapter instruction sheet previously.

If you notice anything else interesting please post it here.

Here's what I noticed:

AF is available in movie mode, but is not continuous, it can be activated by pressing the OK button

MF can be disabled if AF modes to prevent accidental focus shifts if the focus ring on the lens is touched after AF lock.

Electronic level seems to be an added feature.

Already mentioned, but the startup time is quicker, and the AF seems to be further improved.

This is good! I wonder if this is also in the latest Q/Q10 update, if anybody can confirm ??
