Amateur Photographer -- Pentax QS-1 Owner

Hello. I'm a keen amateur photographer. I have a DSLR and a Pentax QS-1 but the QS-1 is my favourite camera. There isn't a lens you can't adapt to it!

I have the Q7, similar to the Q-S1 in all but extreme Quteness.

Welcome, and enjoy! Always good to have another Aussie on board.

Welcome to the Forums from another denizen of downunder. I have DSLRs but also a Q and Q10 (which I recently got for practically nothing because it just happened to be attached to the 02 that I wanted). I would like a Q7 or Q-S1 for the larger sensor. But the original 1/2.3 sensors do a pretty good job. Only problem is that the Qs open up a whole new world of LBA!! With the two Q bodies I can carry a good selection of fire power in the bush and keep it under 1kg in total.

Welcome to the Q Family.
I have the Q ( the original) , the master of precision engineering + Q-s1.
My favourite lense are 01 and 08.
Metabones just started selling Speed Booster for Q cameras, the first version is for Nikon lenses , do not have any, not going to buy any.
The next version is going to be for K mount lenses, that would open Pandora's box.
