Dan, the Q with the #01 prime is a very good combination.  Make sure that you get the latest firmware - it adds IS to manual focus lenses and also provides focus peaking.  It cannot be a K-01 of course but it is surprisingly good and takes reasonable images.  My "fun" lens is a 38mm f1.9 prime in D mount.  It does not vignette and is actually about 212 mm f1.9 on the Q.  I get plenty of self-chuckles about just how powerful a combination this is in such a little package.

Thanks for the encouragement Tom. The idea was to try and live with just the 01 prime as long as I can before I add anything, but the K-adapter is an obvious temptation, and the fisheye is already pulling me.
