And, is there anything resembling the 'positive film' setting of the GRD 4?

No, but there are certainly a lot of filters to choose from. One of them sounds similar thougj. . .

I read that the Q has a vivid setting. I dont need vivid per se, but some slightly warmer jpegs than OOC.

I shoot in vivid, and basically you can create your on 'style' by changing the profiles on many different filters, including vivid.

the film mode is called 'reversal film'.

looks like the pentax version of ricoh's positive film mode. exactly what im looking for. not a film like look, just nice colors.

I also have to say that in general the Q is a very exciting system. the way forward is certainly smaller sensors, not larger. this allows for smaller cameras and lenses, so more portability and hopefully lower prices (though the Q was very expensive at first).

also, the prospect of C and D mount lenses is just amazing. more so than old rangefinder lenses on a Leica or GXR, to me.
