Re: Pentax Canada Says The Q Is NOT Discontinued...Expects New Lenses
In reply to barondla, May 10, 2012

What could they add? Actually, I think, just a firmware update to the Q and take full advantage of the leaf shutter in the 01 & 02 (current) lenses to allow flash sync to the shutter speed limit of the lens. That would be awesome! It would be the perfect budget strobist outdoor camera!!! As it is, you have to buy a hassy or similarly expensive system to have reasonable shutter sync speeds outdoors in bright sun. Granted, limited aperture for flash control is a problem, but I would love the take the fight........
