Trying to figure out what to do with a BestBuy gift card and the Q (not the Q10) seemed an option.

I have the K-01 and really like it.  Sure the Q is VERY small but will it essentially just be a replacement for a P&S?

Will that small appeal wear off when the sacrifice in IQ becomes more apparent?

I gather the output looks decent in good light but gets into P&S territory when indoors.

Opinions?

Thanks

... and yes I know... I certainly don't actually NEED one by any means.  

The main benefit is going to be macro at shorter focal distances...

I forgot to add, and short telephoto lenses.  Compared with APS-C it is a 3.63 crop factor, so putting on a 77/1.8 and you have a 280/6.5 APS-C equivalent in a very small package.

Anyone tried a 77/1.8 on a Q yet?  I bet that would be decent with it.
