Giving it 8 Stars
Oct 28, 2012

The Q deserves five stars for build quality, innovation, size, features, and superb image quality: all of which makes it a camera that's just pure fun to use.

The addition of firmware 1.10 puts it over the top by adding focus peaking and shake reduction for ALL Q-mount and adapted mount lenses which means with a little care it's almost impossible to produce an unplanned out-of-focus image. You also get Pentax's unique TAv (integrated shutter-aperture-auto iso) mode which makes the capture process so much easier.

In my view, the Q has been transformed from the 'little engine that could' to 'the little engine that does.' So five stars from before, plus three after 1.10 adds up to eight. I could not be more pleased!

Get one while you can!

Problems:
