A much smaller and cheaper alternative would be the Tamron 75mm F/3.9 C-mount lens. Of course, it's 1 stop slower than the DA 70, but it delivers nice results on the Pentax Q. It's a very common lens (complete reference is Tamron 23FM75-L), that is avsailble new for less than $140 or used for much less.

Some nice pictures on this thread:

That is a good idea, I guess I didn't realize there were c-mount lenses in the 75ish mm focal length area (I don't know why not, though). I'm pretty sure that specific one would end up being longer, despite being overall smaller though. But those sample pix do look really good. I'll keep that in mind as a more practical option and probably look at other 75ishmm c-mount options.

Thanks!
