Without better lenses, the Pentax Q is a wasted effort

K-mount to Q adaptor should be compulsory
In reply to Raist3d, Aug 4, 2012

I think for "play value" the K-mount to Q adapter should be compulsory. I've just got mine and at the moment am getting to grips with the f 1.4 50mm M on the Q, which gives me the equivalent of a 275mm f1.4. It takes a bit of practice to find what you're pointing it at, at first, especially in bright sunshine.

Surely it wouldn't be that much of a job for Pentax to re-purpose modern K-mount designs to produce fast aperture Q super telephotos. In the meantime I'm looking forward to trying my Tokina 70-210mm and 400mm lenses using the adapter

Admittedly the fact that it was so easy to photograph the camera using a phone is a bit of a contradiction
