Hi everybody

I have recently come across this forum whilst searching for information on the Pentax Q camera. The result was that I have purchased a Q kit with 01 prime lens today so have not had a chance to use it. Tonight I charged up the battery and updated the firmware for both the camera and lens.I have ordered a L39 to Q mount so I can try some of my Jupiter rangefinder lenses which gave pleasing results on my FED and Zorki rangefinders.

I hope to post some pictures when I can get some time to myself.

Oh, the L39 options really needs to be tested. Once you feel comfortable with Q and manual lenses write reviews of your lenses here:

The Qmmunity here is great!

Welcome to the forum, sounds like your all set to go, cameras, software updates, lenses all you need now is good light and subject matter.

Some warmer weather, good light and time to put the Q through it's paces. I'll post a review of my success or failure using L39 glass and adapters.
