First the Pentax Q, now the MX1, what's next?

I bought a Pentax Q out of impulse, never knew what it's strengths and weaknesses are but I knew this little pocket had something special. It came with the 01 lens and it did shoot fairly well. After reading through the forums about the lenses it has I bought the 03 and fell in love with the Q even more. It's one of the widest lenses I've had. While thinking of a new item to purchase, I've read about the MX1 and saw the macro shots and portraits from some of our users here in and I immediately placed an order of a new pentax MX1 and had it shipped right away here in the Philippines. There's something with Pentax that really caught my heart, so much for being a canon user for years. I guess my canon's gonna be in the shelf for now.

Here are some pics of the Q and the 1st pic of the MX1.

I've never owned the MX1, but the Q is all kinds of awesome. As long as you keep your ISO down, image quality is very good. And that 03 lens is great fun to shoot with. It's probably my favorite lens for the Q. Glad you're enjoying yourself!

I'm having a better time with the Q than my canon, quality may be a little than the canon but the enjoyment that you get with the Q is different

Thank you I have been mastering the 03 for quite sometime as this is only a manual lens.

I just have the 02 zoom. I just wanted a camera I could carry with me at all times.
