Practical (comparitive) results

One with the Q7+02 lens, the other with the K5iis + DA 18-135. Cropped and PP'ed both produced nice 14x11 prints and I can't tell one from the other framed and hangin' on the wall.

I much prefer shooting with DSLRs - I have more confidence in predictable results using a VF - but with a little attention to detail the Q-systems produce more than satisfactory images and can't be beat for compact EDC (every day carry) and convenience.

[ I'm twice blessed at the moment , but the Bluebird's being replaced by the Golden Canary - unfortunately there's only one nest available and two seat's are sufficient unto the mission now -- a 7KCAB and a PA-22/20-150 for those interested. ]

I agree, the Q7 (in fact, any one of the Q-series) is capable of outstanding image quality with a little care - especially at lower ISOs, but even when the sensitivity creeps up if you're prepared to do some post-processing.

Great photos, by the way, and lovely looking aircraft! Congrats on the "canary"
