Fantastic travel and street camera
Mar 30, 2012

Hesitated to buy as the price was way to high at launch and was a little afraid of the sensor size... But took the plunge when the prize went to normal (apr. 450 EUR for the double lens kit). Was amazed by the IQ - much better than expected. At lower ISOs - if correctly exposed - its hard to tell the difference from DSLR shots. The camera itself is built like a tank, has enough weight and heft even for chubby male fingers... Its a plain fun to use this tiny spy camera! Only my K7 DSLR stays ob´n the shelf longer now...
Get one as long as you can, the Q - the smallest interchangeable lens camera ever built (a record that will probably never be undercut) will become a cult camera!

Problems:

Some distortion at the wide end with the 02 zoom lens, battery life could be better, but then its a tiny battery (maybe FW will do something about this as well as pushing the mAH with next generation batteries).
