Does this camera's IQ still hold up when compared to other compact cameras?

look at my zenfolio site (at the very top). I've posted some Q-pics there with 100% crops - first pic full range - second pic a 100% crop. The black&white high contrast mode has kind of developped into my favourite mode.

The PENTAX Q has excellent image quality regarding its small sensor, much better than most compacts with the same sensor size.

I have just bought mine in black with the Q 02 Standard Zoom lens.

Both Q 01 Standard Prime and Q 02 Standard Zoom lenses are sharp from the center to the edges already wide open.

The Q 03 Fisheye is very sharp in the center of the frame.

The german lens review site "photozone" tested the Q 01 Standard prime lens, the Q 02 Standard Zoom lens, and the Q 03 Fisheye lens:
