How do you carrry your Q?
Feb 10, 2013

Received my Q on Friday and now I'm looking for a carrying case that will be small enough to accommodate the Q with 02 lens attached + 1 extra battery, any suggestions?

I have a different approach.  My Q + standard prime fits into a Pentax lans bag (DA 55-300 I think).  Then my standard zoom fits into a small DA lens pouch.  I have a very small bag that holds an extra battery, memory card, & polarizing filter.  Then I toss these small protective bags into whatever bag or sack I happen to be carrying.

OTOH I saw an Ad for a Tamrac Rally Micro that looks interesting, but I have yet to actually see/hold one. (Or maybe their Aria bags?).

In 2 pockets, lens removed.  My only complaint w/ Q was that the body cap doesn't stay fixed so I bought a replacement.  Body goes in one pocket, lens goes in another.  Almost as easy as toting my S100, which I would probably still carry preferentially but for the 03 fisheye capability.

I will be buying the Q pinhole body cap ASAP, too, both for pocket portability and ready use.

I have a Lowepro Edit 110 that holds the Q plus another Q lens, as well as a mini tripod in the front pouch and spare battery. I also use it as a belt pack for my K-5 with 40mm or 21mm DA Limited.

On a wrist strap, ready to shoot at all times. When in the train or at school, I just wrap it in a towel and put it in my regular carryall.
