Not sure I am excited about a bigger sensor, since the small sensor is good for extreme tele work.
I wouldn't worry about that, its still much smaller than APSC

Q lenses also have a really flat resolution performance from center to edge so that can be a hint, but at the same time things had fall really quickly. On the other hand performance might be increased slightly due to more diffraction resistance. Like the 02 zoom that has its performance slightly cut due to diffraction at the long end.

With a bit larger sensor we may able to use our adapted lenses at a sharper F stop with less diffraction concerns, assuming they keep the same MP count.

I'm personally hoping for a slightly lower megapixel count. I believe 8 to 10 megapixels should suffice.

Why? At 12MP it's not even close to any magapixel race.

SURPRICE!
Pentax create all the Q lenses for 1/1.7". Just look the new distances, it's so smart!

01 Standar Prime is now a 35mm
02 Standar Zoom is now a 24-70mm
03 Fisheye is now a 15mm
04 Toy-Lens Wide is now a 28mm
05 Toy-Lens Telephoto is now a 85mm
06 Zoom Telephoto is now a 70-200mm
07 Mount Shield Lens is now a 50mm

So Pentax Q7 have a:
15mm
28mm
35mm
50mm
85mm
24-70mm
70-200mm

I can't believe it! BRAVO PENTAX!

I'd be up for a new Pentax Q with 1/1.17" sensor. I'll just keep my original Q body for those fun telephoto experiments.

That actually makes it sound more true than any of the rumors.

Isn't the crop factor for a 1/1.7" sensor 4.55? So that gives us an 01 Prime of 39mm? I pretty much sold my Q because of the lack of a good 28mm prime that wasn't a toy lens.

I'm so excited for the new 07 lens and the "Q7". I hope a photo of it leaks soon.

I hope the 07 comes free since it's the body cap lol.

Also... I hope it goes back to a mag alloy body... (though would that really push prices way way up again?)

1/2.3" and 1/1.7"
Can someone explain these measurements to me please? They can't possibly be in inches given the size of the sensor is around a quarter inch. Is there no figure of Xmm by Ymm?
