LOL. Then Pentax should ask $ 4000 for it. And we all know that making things more small is costly, so it is justified.

The Q let me down with some creative aspect i would try:

  • The 03 fish-eye can't do long exposures or Bulb.
  • There is no wireless control of flashes, even with a 360 as controller and a 540 as a slave.
