Personally I really like the look and concept of this camera and look forward to seeing how it performs. Most of the criticism is based on the size of the sensor – which is the same size as the sensor of my FZ38 which produces good quality images, I don't see any reason why this camera will not. The small sensor gives it the advantage that adding a lens does not destroy the small and light concept which seems to be the floor in the most over compact system cameras.
I hope they take advantage of the small sensor to provide some long range lenses that will make the system more versatile.
The price seems a bit steep at first bit should come down.
I think the Q has a lot of potential – but as many have said will have to see if it delivers
