Hello from a new Pentax owner in England

Hi everyone!

I just entered the Pentax world. My main camera is a Canon D-SLR, but I just got a Pentax Q10 as my second camera for when lugging the Canon and all the stuff that goes with it is too much. With the kit lens on it fits in my jacket pocket Other than the 5-15mm kit lens I've tried it with a 135mm f/3.5 and adaptor, and just received a CCTV 25mm 1.4.

Loving the little Q10 so far - bags of features and even though the IQ and response speed isn't quite what my Canon offers, it does have a couple of advantages - synchs my external flashes up to 1/2000s and has very good stabilisation.

Congrats on the Q10 and welcome!!

I just got a Q myself for the same reason you did. I have to say I am loving it. SO fun to play with!

Welcome and congrats on the Q10 purchase. I bought a Q about a month and a half ago, and it is a great little camera for carrying around all the time. Enjoy the forums - there is a lot of great info here, and very friendly people.
