It's really hard to tell if the image quality is truly improved over the Q from these shots since all are ISO 100. But the good news is to see two shots with the 06 lens and it shows some rather nice bokeh/dof control!

And it's not even shot wide open.. which is good because it means we can get even more shallow DOF, but makes me wonder if wide open it doesn't look too good.

It's tele lens compression of space at work, so we can somewhat expect that if the glass is really good, Q will be able to produce some amazing pictures.

But I wouldn't go that far to pre-conclude whether the lens is good or bad wide open. There's too much rambling of the same or similar sort in these forums, where people try to assume way too much. I'd rather say it should be marvellous.

With that lens and Q, and nicely compressed background, one can even start thinking of becoming a wedding photographer ...

Now Pentax, please pull out that amazing, fast wide lens from your hat!
