Those particular pictures were taken with the Pentax adapter.
I have several other adapters also, but I don't remember which ones.
My primary reason for getting the Pentax one was "an abundance of caution" - I was able to get a good price on a used Pentax one {with tripod foot} and I had been wondering whether the rolling shutter could cause little-noticed but real effects, basically slight imperfections that would add up to a noticeable reduction in IQ, so I got the Pentax adapter just to be sure I was doing the best I can {but a comparison is hard to come by, because each picture is unique, so I still cannot tell whether it is a good investment}.

OK, so our preferences differ. I really like the "magnification" {yes, I know we can argue about proper terminology, but this is the wording normhead prefers - and now I see that you also use that term in the other thread} my reasonably inexpensive Sigma 70-300mm lens gives me via my Q-7 {these pictures were all taken from a seat on the back deck of our house}

Larger sites, but how many of them? At one time it was suggested to me that I'd be better off taking a picture with my K-30 and then cropping to get the same effect as taking a picture with the same lens on my Q-7. However, controlled backyard testing showed that the Q-7 worked better, because it put so many more pixels into the effort.

Why not a one-inch sensor? This suggestion comes up regularly, and I regularly make the same response. Many of us were attracted to the Q family because of how it turns the K-mount lenses we already have into really nice birding lenses. Go from the 4.7 crop-factor of the Q-7/Q-S2 to the 2.7 crop-factor of a one-inch sensor, and the camera becomes just another camera to us.

Yes, a tilting LCD would be very nice.
They have submitted two patents in the past year for primes around 4mm in length; I would prefer one of them to 6mm, but I wouldn't necessarily refuse to buy 6mm, depending on how they priced it.

I bought my 01 lens from a Japanese merchant via Amazon because it seemed to be "Japanese only" at the time.
