New Q with Adapted Lenses!

Not much to say other than that I use a larger system camera but wanted to try out how the Qs smaller sensor will do with my lenses. I didn't buy the Q7 because I wanted max telephoto and macro. Gonna be fun. Peace!

Wow, just started and I have CLOUT!

My macro is a 55/3.5 (Konica Hexanon, all of which seem to lack contrast on the Q. I have many of them) but it seems like pretty much any lens can do macro work on the Q. The 135/3.2 focuses down to 1 meter so that's some easy working distance!
