New Here, But Not to Pentax

I just couldn't stand it anymore so I bought the little Q-S1. I've used Pentax since around 1980 starting with the venerable K-1000. Still have it. Moved on to a ME Super, still have it and the 50 mm 1.4 SMC lens, which is quite nice on the Q-S1. I had a Pentax DSLR whose name I forget that I gave to a friend.

The Q-S1 came out of Osaka from a dealer, Megucamera, who was good to deal with. The camera was exactly what he said it was. I love being able to carry a camera so easily and still get good results. In that it is like my Olympus XA3 and Canon Demi. The Q-S1 came with the 02 zoom and the 06 zoom. An 01 prime is on its way through JapanPost and will hopefully arrive before I die. JapanPost is very slow with the Covid-19 gumming up the works.

I took the camera out today for some quick snapshots and it delivers good sharpness and color with the 02 zoom. It's good to be back with a Pentax again. When not shooting Pentax I have a nice Sony A7M II with the Zeiss 55mm and the Sony 24 - 240 zoom.
