Agree John.  This is not a great quality photo but cropping the K5 to get the equivalent would have been a challenge also.  I will do more testing to see if the results can be improved.

The benefit of something like the Q over cropping is even bigger with video, as cropping video gives way too little resolution.

I really believe that it would be better to have a few lenses, and multiple bodies with different sized sensors, than to have a wide range of lenses, in many ways.  If any of the DSLR makers made a full APS-sized body with a comfortable grip and smaller sensors, people would laugh at first, until they saw the results.  Imagine a 200mm f/2.8 or 400mm f/5.6 lens on a Q-like sensor with AF, camera-controlled aperture, and IS, with a camera body that doesn't turn when you manually focus the lens.

Especially with a tripod-mounted lens, changing bodies is a snap.
