Pentax Q 01 prime focus issue

Maybe cleaning the contacts of an empty SD card and inserting and removing the card will get some gunk out of that mechanism. It’s difficult to get to those little contacts inside.

Q Discontinued?

I see the loyal Q user base is a bit different from the Japenese schoolgirl "target market". Ricoh will let the line die rather than a costly reintroduction with limited return. Perhaps we all will find a reasonably priced 08 lens with some back up Q system bodies.

Tony, What a street shooter! Add wifi and a tilting screen and all the urban hipsters would toss their Fuji's for a mono-Q.

Watch eBay and you can find an original Q with an 01 lens around $150-$180. Then you have a back up body and extra battery charger. Sometimes I have seen them with extra batteries as well. With The Q system's future in doubt, not a bad contingency.

I just won a mint Q-S1 black body on EBay for $170.00 to keep my original Qs company in the bag. Now I'm trolling for an 08 lens for the bigger sensor. I'm looking forward to seeing low light performance with th 01 prime as well.

Thank you for taking the time to demonstrate your high iso post processing work flow. Now we all need to shoot more photos and worry less about Ricoh's next move. If they kill the system, maybe that wide angle zoom will be more affordable for all of us!

Your best tip/trick for new Q-S1 owner?

An affordable way to obtain the 01 prime lens is to watch eBay for an original Q with the 01 lens as a set. The original Q Was sold that way. you'll get an extra battery, charger and a back up body around $150.00. The original Q body is a work of art, and if you ever adapt lenses, you can get tremendous telephoto reach. Most important, have fun with your new camera.

Anything announced about the Q system, or is the Q too cute and fun to live in a world of pixel peepers?
