Thinking about switching to a Pentax Q
Dec 4, 2012


I currently have Canon Powershot G11, and I'm thinking about switching to a Pentax Q, since I do like the idea of having interchangable lenses, but don't want to carry a big DSLR everywhere.

Now is the switch of a G11 to a Pentax Q a good one? I've read in the specs that the sensor is smaller, doesn't this give more noise to the picture? And what about the lenses? I see there are 'only' 5 lenses available, but is it also possible to use adapters to mount other lenses?

I want to use the camera as point and shoot, as well as a nice portrait lens for taking pictures of my newborn and also have some zoom for when I'm on a holiday or something. So I think in the end 3 lenses will do, but I like to have some choice.

Can anyone advise me in this? Or are there other MILC's I could consider. Price is also important; I'm not looking forward to spending more than € 300,- on a camera incl. 1 (kit)lens.
