To compare the Q shooting to a P&S tells me you do not understand nor get this camera- it's more like shooting with a micro-DSLR.

Dude, that comparison is simply not true.

It's totally true. Flash sync 1/250th (what other P&S compact camera has that kind of flash sync in this category). Shutter speed to 1/8000th. ND filters on the premium lenses. Manual zoom in/out on the zooms. Virtually the *same* settings of the K-5.

Flash sync 1/13th second with adapted lenses, unless you use a mount adapter that costs almost as much as the camera did.  Invisible ND filter inside a lens?  That's a quirky compact feature, not an SLR feature.  Settings like a K-5?  I could really have used Sv or TAv.

But the main reason it feels mostly like a compact to me is that SLRs have viewfinders.

Looking at the resulting pictures is a compact-like experience too, so far.
