Quick Pentax Q Survey

Hi all,

Its been interesting reading all these discussions about the future of the Q and what people like and don't like. So I decided to create a very quick survey (Limited to 10 questions unless I pay them to upgrade!).
Its just simple questions like 'Do you want a viewfinder' etc.

It would be great if you can spare 5 minutes to fill it in. I'll post up the results in a week.

I hope doing this kind of thing is not against the forum rules!

To me, the Q systeme lack a good and decently fast wide angle (24-28-30 mm f2/2.8)

Done. I'll be interested to see how many people participate, not to mention the outcomes.

My answers mostly don't seem to fit.

1/ Not interested
2/ Yes, more lenses keep the system alive (and I always want something longer)
3 No, I want a choice of colours (white, red, blue, green)
4/ YES, not bothered either way (I just want a digital Auto 110)
5/ As above
6/ No, the resolution is too low and poor to see in direct sunlight (I want an EVF)
7/ It's too short
8/ Not bothered about it
9/ Not interested in either, would reduce battery life

Done. The one question I would have wanted to modify is the tilt screen. If I get a viewfinder I don't need it but if I don't get viewfinder I would want one. Thanks.

The 02 zoom gives you f/2.8, at 24mm equivalent on the Q7, and 28mm on the Q.

Completed. I think you covered the bases well. Only question I had difficulty was the last. The 01 is better than OK but not
quite perfect. A metal barrel and distance scales might make it perfect. I decided to see the list as a numerical ranking and
gave it a 4, (OK).

I would have liked to see (what lens would you like) and for me I would like to see a superzoom something in the 50 to 300mm range to take up where the 06 stops
