The little Q is like a center resolution lens tester, very merciless in showing the differences.

You can say that again. Even my Leica M lenses were less than ideal on the Q. The best one I've found so far is my trusty old screw mount 1:1 Macro-Takumar 50mm f4. Sharp as a tack and no CA. Works pretty well as a 275mm equivalent f4 Q macro lens.


And my best is Pentax M 28mm f3.5. Of the longer zooms, best was Kiron 80-200 f4. The macro with Macro-Takumar 50mm f4 must be pretty amazing on Q.
