Very similar. The main difference is that there's just a single control dial that has to serve multiple functions - but that in itself is very much like the K-01, which was my first K-series camera, so the two complemented each other well.


Maybe I should simply get a Q-series to satisfy my curiosity They're not that expensive after all. Also, it would give me a great excuse to gather a few C&D-mount lenses

The original Q definitely has the best build; it still has a magnesium frame, all the others have either a plastic body or a laminate. The Q7 has a larger sensor, which gives a bit wider crop factor than the original Q; but if you're interested in getting it for long tele work (one place it has a niche - the 5.5x crop factor on the original Q can give you a 2200 FL equivalent on a 400mm lens, but it's got to be a very hi-resolution lens), the larger sensor can actually be a disadvantage.

Dunno if you saw them, but a few months back I posted some pics of the Q with some of my C/D mount lenses and pics I took with them:
