Thanks all for the comments.

That's the original pictures corrected with a lower contrast (I found the K 55mm too contrasted in this occasion):

Thanks for the comments!
Actually I voluntarly provided images with a warm atmosphere and reduced exposition and contrast to make them look as a movie scenes, that's because I'm not so good with B&W processing :D

Which camera for street photography?

Thank you for the comments. Unfortunately I still haven't had any chance to try the Q or the K-01 with my hands.
They both have some appeal on me, especially for the price (sorry the M9 is a little too much :D ) but the Q doesn't convince me for performance with low lights and the K-01 for the size. Maybe I'll see what Pentax is going to present at Photokina in September (and Fuji as well, someone rumors of an X200).

I'd prefer a compact-like camera because DSLRs intimidate people, and cameras with swivel screen let you to shot without pointing directly at people's face.

Hi guys,
what do you suggest to someone that is looking for a

this year I realized that time I spend for photography got drastically reduced to zero, I'm much busier now and my chances to carry my camera with me are very poor, the K20D I own is big and heavy.

I spend a lot of time walking around, and my interest for street photography is getting bigger. I'd like to have something smaller and discrete, but at the same time I don't want to get rid of my gear (K20D, DA* 16-50, D-FA 100mm, Sigma 8-16 and some manual glasses).

My first choice was Pentax Q, but I'm afraid the Q system is too immature.
I could change the K20D for a K-01 but it's not very small.

Do you have any suggestions for me?
I was looking at the Sony NEX 5n camera but I'd like to have some advise on that...

-Andrea

Hello Pinholecam, your shots are very impressive and look you're getting the best from the Q. I'm wondering if you have ever compared the Q with premium compact cameras.

Thank you guys!

This shot has been taken with Sigma 8-16 which produces a tonality of blue I really like. Then in PP I slightly reduce luminosity and saturation of the blue channel.
