The Pentax Q7 does well in everyday shooting, delivering image quality that's generally as good as the best enthusiast compacts. However, it under delivers for the entry-level ILC class in terms of resolution and high-ISO performance. Though we had few serious complaints about its performance, it's hard to recommend among so many excellent fixed and interchangeable-lens cameras that cost about the same.
Enthusiast shooters interested in available light photography and casual portraits looking for a very small camera with the ability to change lenses.
Enthusiasts who would give priority to low light shooting, resolution, depth of field control and lens selection over compact size.
