Boriscleto offers the sensible solution. But it sounds very interesting to open it and try to fix it on your own.

Agree, the Q is enjoyable because making it do what you want is both challenging and attainable.

I own and use several Qs, and also find so many complaints about reflectivity of the LCD surprising. I am happy to use it in bright and low sun on snow and ice, in the mountains or at the seaside, etc.

In the link embedded in your post it says "a variety of DSLR cameras". So it is quite obvious that there's no film cameras there.

They showed us what "roadmapped" means with the Q macro. You should base your approach to what you actually can find on the Marketplace here and eBay.

Mine is built around an older fixed lens, no way of replacing the optics. It is not a Lensbaby.

I bought one of these a year or so ago. It is clearly homemade. It could be used in the same way as some Lensbaby lenses, but I found it hard to locate the focal plane on the q (I would not try to use it as any sort of t/s lens). Mine has lived somewhere in the bottom of a drawer after the first week.

I don't get it. Looks like any sort of cheap knob or nut with the right diameter do the job, like these.

The Kenko works for me. But the usual way to attain what you want is to remove the glass from an A teleconvertor, and voila, you have an A extension tube.

If you are interested in macro and stacking, the Macro photograpy part of the PF (under Photography) offers quite a lot of info on equipment, use and a lot of pictures. Would be good to have some more Q pictures there!
