The funny part is that all Qs I see in the forum are used with long telephotos, scopes and other gadgetry, when the system was designed with a completely different idea in mind!
There are a more shots with the native lenses and small mm adapted lenses in the Share your shots with a Q thread.

Yeah, I think that there are way more shots with the native lenses than with adapted telephoto ones if you check the Q forum. "Share your shots with a Q" and "Pentax Q street shots - post them here" house most of them, quite a bunch with the fish-eye actually.

I doubt that you would lose any significant money if you don't like it, but considering how few that are unhappy with their Q I doubt it.
How old are the kids? If they are young Q can be their way into photography.

Amy,
Now, to ascend to the next level of the Q you must order the Pentax K-Q adapter and non-optional foot. Once those have arrived, you will be contacted again.

Amy,
The Pentax OEM Adapter has a cutout on the bottom for the foot that fits the DA*300. They are available by ordering directly from parts at Pentax USA for around $50.
