Nice to see that you took the time to get these with the Q's. All very nice, and excellent coping with contrasty sunlight and shadow lighting. I have to imagine, though, that the same shots with the K-3 are even more fabulous.

Why do you have Q-S1 in addition to Q7? They are identical except cosmetically unless you've found some secret. I'm crossing my fingers that a new, more robust Q-body is on the drawing board at Pentax.

Thank you for the kind comments, the Q7 has a rather high shutter count and the Q-S1 came along at an attractive price, sooo............ besides that it does autofocus in video mode.

I can’t speak for Heinrich (and his magnificent images speak for themselves) but I also have a Q-S1 and a couple of Q-7s. I bought the Q-S1 first, on a whim (and at a very good price) and liked it so much that I bought a Q-7 body as a back-up (also at a great price.) Besides being able to auto-focus the 01 and 02 lenses with video, they are basically the same in function. The Q-7 is much more comfortable in my hand than the Q-S1 is—the hard edges on the Q-S1 IR port are not pleasant and the Q-S1's model dials are to easier to turn accidentally. I usually keep the Fish-eye on the second Q-7 body.
Thank you and I do agree that the Q7 is easier to hold but one gets used to the Q-S1. If I'd come across a well priced Q 7 I'd probably buy it.
