Maybe It is time for a Bauhaus edition - dull metal top and bottom with glass body panels

is it possible to change the electronics from a Q-S1 body in a Q (original) body? Are there more differences than the design of the body? Would be great to have the better IQ of the Q-S1 in the nice magnesium body of the original Q.
Did someone make this change already?

I don't think so - the Q is smaller, so is the sensor.

but the screwholes and buttons seem to be in the idendical place. I think it might be exchangeable.
Just wondered if somebody already had the same thought.

There'll be a reason why the Q-7 and Q-S1 bodies are larger than the original Q. They wouldn't have made them larger "just because". Even if the screws and buttons seem to be in the same place, I'm sure you'll find the contents of a Q-S1 won't fit in the Q body...
