Q(7) + DA 70 f/2.4?

Has anyone ever done this?

I've really enjoyed using a cheap SMC Pentax F 35-70 on the q7 with the official k-q adapter, but find I almost always use it at 70mm, and the DA 70 f/2.4 seems like it could be a way to have that ~320mm equivalent reach, in a super compact form factor, with probably better IQ, and a wider aperture when necessary.

But it's a bit expensive for something I'd only be using manually, at a focal length I can already achieve with a lens that I already have, which still sort of fits in my hoodie pocket despite being much bigger.

Thoughts? Experience? Alternative ideas?
