When my Pentax Q K-mount adapter arrives, I want to see what my Voigtländer 125/2.5 macro will do on the Q.  It's a heavy lens, and with an EFL of 688mm it will need very solid support - I only hope that the tripod mount on the adapter is hefty enough to handle it.  It's a supersharp low CA lens, so I think it can deliver performance approaching the better APS-C telelenses like that DA 560.  We'll see...
