    hi there, sorry haven't posted any pics on here....i'm going to open flikr account down the track, so will send you a link to it when that happens...btw, Ive got the Q Q10 and Q7....but mostly use the 7, its a better camera.....I also use a K50, don't expect the Q series to produce images as good as the dslrs....anyway happy shooting, will look forward to seeing surf sorry for delayed reply...only found msg just now
  2. surfar
    hi Mick, I just noticed your comment about the 150-500 on Q7 for surfing.Now I don't have that lense but I do have a mirror 500mm I use(tamron) and it works well.I also use a sigma 100-300 both on Q7 and Q10...ive found it very versatile and they are inexpensive too.I shoot surfing @ Crescent head(australias Rincon) and Saltwater Point.....both long pointbreaks so the reach of the Q( a teleconverter with a sensor) is outstanding.CLEAN WAVES...Peter
