It was:

MS Optical Sonnetar 25mm f/1.1 lens for Q mount
I was hoping it would make a front-page, or at least an expression for interest, since it's the first time I saw something specifically made for the Q, by someone else other than Pentax. But anyways, it's probably long discontinued by now.. more than a year has passed

I was aware of that lens, but that rare occasion confirms my assertion above: no one but Ricoh Imaging, and an old retired man in love with optics and with spare time at hands, is really interested in Q.

I've heard it's quite popular in Japan.

I have one but it was cheap. It was fun to try it for telephoto (but not very useful).

In what way was it not useful, out of curiosity? It seems pretty expensive for a lens that is not useful.

I meant I used the Q with K-mount adapters and telephoto lenses (DA*300mm). I never had the Q-mount telephoto.


Focus was too difficult and IQ was poor even with correct focus... I was better off cropping a K-5 image.

I've wondered if my mount adapter was just reflecting light internally and mucking up the image. Could be.

When do we expect the 08 lens to be available?
