Pentax Q IR conversion?

Hi. I wonder if anybody knows about how conversion is done. I have never done that to any digital camera. In Pentax Q, the cover glass seems to be entirely exposed, I thought if it's maybe easy to remove it and install back.

Interesting question. You have a good point about the sensor, but I'm wondering if the odd size of it might make it more costly. I've had my old Pentax K100ds converted and it's quite prone to dust collection. In addition to the physical conversion, the color channels an focusing have to be corrected for IR. Given the the 01 and 02 lens have their own firmware, I think the Q might be a difficult candidate for conversion.

Why? This might be a point for AF SLRs, but Q uses only sensor-based AF, which is always correct.

I have removed an IR filter from a Sony NEX-5N. It focuses normally, through it loses infinity focus with manual lenses. The only thing in camera which doesn't work is auto-WB (WB from sample works ok, through).
