johnmflores, do you notice any image guality difference between the Q7 and Q-S1? Interesting choice using the Q-S1 for birding. I have considered that. Thinking the knob might allow more finger room when using the Pentax Q-K adapter.

Enjoy the Q.

No comparisons yet, although I presume that they'll be more or less the same. Two things about the Q-S1 turn me off. One, that knob is an ergonomic step backward compared to the vestigial grip of the Q/Q7. Two, the mode and adjustment dials sitting above the top plate of the Q-S1 (versus flush with the Q7/Q) seems less refined, less solid, just a hair retrograde.

I'm picking nits here, but since I have the cameras that are otherwise identical it's the nits that get picked.

And I'm still wondering out loud whether the internals of the Q7/Q-S1 can be Frankensteined into the body of the original Q. The screw on the bottom plate appear to match...

Johnmflores, understand completely. I still think Pentax will do another metal Q body. Some day they are going to need a meaningful Q upgrade, and metal is fairly easy to implement. Crossing my fingers.

Is there anything you like better about the Q-S1 vs Q7?
Thanks
