Pentax Q, the 47mm GRD IV?
Dec 22, 2012

Looking at the now discontinued Pentax Q, and it is so cheap with the 47mm equiv prime. I was thinking of getting a GXR or WA and tele lenses for my GRD IV, but perhaps it'd make sense to get the Q instead.

I really want a small size for pocketability, so a GRD with extensions or a GRD, even with the 28 A12, might be out of the question. It might be nice to have an additional focal length available without fidgeting with lenses.

IQ should be rather similar I believe.

How is the handling of the Q compared to GRD? And the AF speed? Theres nothing resembling snap focus, or is there?
