The lack of macro is the biggest reason mine isn't used more.

I have a white Pentax Q, Black Q10 and a black and silver Q10. All the lenses except that pricey wide angle zoom - no doubt one day one will find its way to me !

I have yellow Q-7 and gold Q-S1. Both I bought this year. Four lenses: 01, 02, 05 (that I do not use much: Barondla you can pm me if you need it) and 25 mm Cosmicar C-mount. And Pentax Q to K adapter. Thinking about 08 but it is too pricey.

Q7 black, Q7 yellow, 01, 02 black, 02 yellow, 03, 06 and 08 lenses. 08 is my favorite.

I often use Kenko +5 close up lens with Q 06 zoom for close ups.

Various adapted lenses (mostly for macro purpose and telescopes), which also means adapters including but not limited to genuine PENTAX K-Q adapter.

It all started when I bought a new Q7+02 kit in January 2015 after lurking in PENTAX forum for quite a while. I used to own zero PENTAX equipment. Yes it's all your fault, PENTAX Forum.

Lack of macro? Get the Q-K adaptor and every close focussing lens you own becomes a macro. Don't you own a 50mm macro? Bung that on your Q and enjoy what is effectively 4:1 macro (roughly).

But even regular lenses can get you pretty darn close.

DA*300 on the Q

FA31 on the Q

I only recently got a Q because I wanted something light to go cycling with. I've ended-up with a cream original Q, a cream and a red/black Q-S1, two 01 lenses, three 02s, and one each of the 03, 05, 06 and 07 lenses. I also have a nice leather case for the original Q, a soft Q camera bag and two third party Q-K adaptors. I'm trying to keep my completest tendencies under control if only because the 08 zoom is still a big OWCH cost wise. I tend to use the 01 and the 06 the most. It is a shame they didn't make more primes for the system.

I've got 3 black original Q:s with the 01 lens. I'm still on my first one. It simply will not break (yet) in spite of being dropped on rocks and various other types of mishandling.
The two backups still lives in their original boxes.
Lenses: 3x01, a bunch of C and CS mount glass, and of course a bunch of adapters!

2 Yellow Q7 bodies, 1 each of the The lens except the Toy Wide and Toy telephoto. Also Kmount adapter. I do not take them out as much since I bought the Ricoh GR III.

Black Q, black & silver Q7, all lenses 01-08 (04 & 05 are seriously underestimated IMO), original K-Q-Adapter (and a Kiwi one), a third party 110-Q adapter, two 110 Pentax lenses (used with lensbaby aperture discs), a set of automatic Q-mount tubes. Just re-discovered my collection because the mentioned original K-Q adapter was on offer, so I‘m now experimenting with it again. Was quite shocked to discover that a bloated (defective) battery was stuck in the Q7‘s body and had to use pliers and a lot of patience to get it out. But no harm done, was very glad about that.
