Intrigued..as always

Iíve always looked on forums for hours upon hours before getting myself one of these cameras. I heard about the Q-series cameras about 2 1/2 years ago but dismissed it because of size. Clearly was wrong but at the time I wanted a hybrid camera as I do enjoy recording video. Now I have Sony and the wonderful Q. Please pleaseee share images from your Q-series camera. I got this camera to take on the go for my girlfriend and I. We love small adventures. I eventually want to make a photo book out of the Pentax q images I have

Welcome aboard, I think you will be surprised at how photographer friendly the whole Q system is, creatively the options are amazing and the 08 and 06 lenses are my favourites, enjoy the ride.

Welcome the Q community and system. Bet you'll find the Q liberating. It promotes spontaneity and creativity.
Thanks for sharing

The 06 is almost essential to fully utilize the Q but the 08 will transform your understanding of the camera. They are both really fine pieces of glass. The 06 does seem to be a bit fragile. Nevertheless it is an essential Q lens.

The 06 is on my Q 95% of the time. A very hand, excellent lens!

Itís funny because I love wide. I actually like wide portraits with my Sony. But I just donít see myself wanting to shoot wider than 13mm. Maybe thatíll change down the road

Just as others said I know itís had itís problems breaking over time but Iíll keep it on my camera just like you. The focal range seems way too good on the Q
