M 135 f3.5 "vs" M 200 f4 - best suited for Q?

The M 135mm was the first adapted lens I tried with my Pentax Q and it has worked out great, especially for handheld shots. Keeping it at f/5.6 or f/8 limits the purple fringing which can quickly get excessive.
The other adapted lens I use is the DA 55-300. Its impressive for the ultra zoom and has allowed me to take some shots of birds for identification. However, it takes a lot of patience and skill (which I lack) to get truly worthwhile. The attached photo is an example of the DA 55-300 at 300mm.

I agree that this appears to be a low cost version of the Q system rather than an upgrade to the Q7. I hope we're wrong because I want to upgrade my original Q to something with the bigger sensor (Q7 has a 1/1.7" but i would love a 2/3" if it fits) but more importantly, a higher resolution screen. Probably because I'm spoiled with looking at a hi res smartphone all day...

Glad I checked the forums today and saw this treat. Really improved my 02 lens from where it was barely focusing indoors to now being super quick. Thanks!

I'm in the same boat. Hopefully reason (cheap 02 lens after camera body is sold) will prevail

okay I caved (wife fell asleep...). I got in on the Groupon deal with the 01 Lens and realized that I really can't find a better deal for the 02 lens. Now to go through the hassle of selling the body since I need to recoup some of the damage from the last month

I got in the the Groupon deal with the 01 prime lens. Is it worth dealing with the reselling hassle to get the 02 zooms lens or should I just save my money for the 06 lens, which I heard is pretty good?

Same here. Almost would have been worth it to spend the extra $50 at Target for quicker turnaround except I really wanted the 01 lens after reading all the posts.
