On Pentax Ricoh updates firmware for Q and lenses news story (20 comments in total)

TheOriginalSinnerman: I always laugh when I see people commenting on the Q, especially the specs nerds who are after sensor size and have nothing better to do but pixel peep. This camera is for lovers of photography, it's form factor is great, size is even better and it produces more than adequate images in fact the lenses are extremely sharp wide open. Please, go and buy a micro fourthirds camera or even a full frame if your main concern is sensor size and not photography.

I totally agree. I have the Q with both standard lenses and the fisheye. The focusing and "shutter lag" were unacceptable prior to the firmware update, now I can say it is pretty quick. I have a K-7 and carry it around with the 16-50. It gets to be a heavy load even with just the one lens. There are times I need the extra resolution. But for daily walking around, the Q fits the bill, I don't even know it's in my bag it's so light. I think adding a prime superwide lens to the line up would do the trick.
