good new for everyone i guess.. this also means that older models such as the Q, Q10 and Q7 would effectively become cheaper or will be put on offer..

adorama seems to have the Q-S1 body for $399.00.. the question remains, will there be enough demand for it..

i still prefer holding onto my original Q irregardless of it being the original camera and a few years old since i find the body more appealing than the design of the Q10 and Q7.. the Q-S1 however resembles more the original Q camera but to me 1 Q body would be enough..

Just picked up a Q and I'm very pleased with it. Much better image quality than I hoped for.

Thirty-three years later...

I loved my Pentax 110. And the Q is like doing it all over again.

the Q is a very good compact system.. some of my best moon shots were taken by that little beast with the takumar 400mm prime
