I must admit... I have seen those pictures over and over again, but it's still a nice sight

Good news for those looking for a $5000 FA600, and for me if that 50mm is going to be as cheap as it looks.

Glad to hear that they have already been added to the database. I am looking forward to seeing how the 50/1.8 handles, if it is anything like the 35/2.4 it will be a real bargain.

Large black lenses are problematic in the sun.

Is it just me or does that Q Adapter look larger than the actual camera

I think it even should to get it to fit K-mount lenses.

The Q fits into the adapter via a slot on the side

The K-mount adapter is interesting -- it has a "number of stops down" aperture ring, reminiscent of the lenses for the Olympus Pen FT. Of course, it also has a shutter.

I'm pretty sure it has both. At least the focus will be silent and very easy to quickshift to manual ;-)

What are the advantages to the Pentax adapter vs this one?
