Waterton Lakes National Park with the Q7. #1

Again this year I spent the first 2 weeks of June in Waterton Lakes National Park. While I did most of my shooting with the K3 and K5 the Q7 got a good workout.
I used lenses # 1, 2, 6 and 8. The surprise was the standard zoom (#2) it did a stellar job. The exif data is intact, so check it out.
I'll post it in 4 parts, Landscapes first:

Another great set of shots. It seems that most of the complaints about the 02 image quality was reported by those using the Q or Q10. Maybe the 02 lens is better suited to the sensor size of the Q7.

Beautiful shots and amazing country.

The Q seems to perform admirably for you.

Absolutely beautiful shots and scenery. The rainbow is a prize winner. Easily on par with the best of National Geographic.

Thank you kindly Denny, you may have a point, I do like that lens better on the Q7 than the Q.

Thank you, it won't replace the K3 any time soon but it does fine in it's own right.

Thank you for the kind comments, I did see and got some decent photos of some wildflowers but the shooting stars were just about done and the calypso orchids were either done or I did not find them. Spring came very early, according to some locals the ice went out on Cameron Lake in the middle of April. (normal seems to be at the beginning of June)

Thank you for the praise but now you made me blush.
