That's why portability is THE major oppertunity for improvement.
For Interchangeable Lens Cameras the Q sort of defines portability. A FF camera, even a Pentax, will be larger and less portable than the APS-C versions we now have. Yet the Q gets no love and the FF (still mythical) gets endless pages of comments and speculation.

Perhaps what we need is a FF Q.......................

The Q is Pentax most groundbreaking camera. Big cameras that takes great pictures has been around forever. Small ones that do is something new, and is a large part of what the future of photography will be all about.

Want to hear something really weird? Despite its portability the Q remains static in my studio. Combines with a Q-PK adapter and DFA 100mm it's one of my best macro tools.

So in other words, it's going to be a very long time before sensors out resolve lenses.
