Some really nice images here using the new 08 wide zoom and a Q7.

Pretty impressive pictures! Sharpness, distortion and CA look nice to me, although full size raw files would be the best way to get a real idea.
Lenses #03, 06 and 08 are really the lenses that allow the Pentax Q line to differentiate from other products.

Impressive, seems like the lens may be worth its price.

However, I was also impressed with his bag in picture #2. Anyone recognise the make of that one?

Looks pretty good. I was notified that mine is back-ordered, looking forward to it. I'm also wondering what bag he's using.

I hope it's a bit more flare-resistant than 01 and 02.

I have asked the OP over at clubsnap about the bag. I'll post the response if I get one.

I asked him at Flickr -- it's a 8" OpTech Accessory Pack.

I use that same bag - the thing I don't like about it is that to open it and change lenses, the bag needs to be on something flat and stable or else stuff might tumble out. But it holds everything very well without wasting a lot of space. Wish there were zippers on the pouches too...

btw - packed in the case as pictured is the 04 toy lens, fisheye, eyepiece, 02 zoom and the prime mounted on the Q.
