Pentax Q 06 lens is not a superzoom, it's a 69-207/2.8 equivalent. Q7 has 1/1.7" sensor which is 50% bigger than typical superzoom's 1/2.3". I'll try to post the results later, when I'll have time to do the test shots.

That's different because it doesn't cover the 24-200 range of the RX10. People are interested in the RX10 like the wide to tele range all in one solution. A 1/1.7 sensor, while better than a 1/2.3, still can't compare to the 1" sensor in the RX10. A quick look at DXO shows the Pentax isn't in the same league with the Sony 1".

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
