So, are Ricoh gonna jump on the m-4/3 bandwagon? Is that their mirrorless agenda?

I’m more interested in the 45mm, f1.8 tele lens for the Q. That would be great for head shots.

Last week I was doing some product shots for a client when his HR mangler poked her head in and asked me if I could take a few head shots of several new employees to be used on their business cards and God only knows what else. While I was doing the product shots with my K-5IIs, I had not brought a tele lens for head shots because nobody told me that was a possibility. However….. in my bag I had stuck my Q7 with the 06 Zoom. I pulled the company’s SD card out of my K-5IIs and put it into the Q7 ( since the products are not yet released they do not allow me out of the building with their SD card) and took several dozen head shots of these unprepared employees at wide open aperture. They turned out pretty good and the check that I picked up more than paid for the 06 lens.
