  • Replied in May I ask...
    How good are you as a photographer? I see you wish to pair the 08 with a Q. Keep that in mind when looking at examples provided by others. Take note of their lens+camera pairing. Clearly, a skilled ...

  • The DA 40 is my fist "Limited"... works great... no problems.... love it. Cheers... M

  • Replied in More...?
    Excellent series. Any more? I plan to be in Venice towards the end of September. I'm considering leaving the K-3 at home and using my Q/Q7? Did you take/use your Q? Any tips? Lessons learned? Cheer ...
