Pentax Q

I bought the Pentax Q through Blinq and ebay store. The price was less than $300, and the camera came with the 8.5mm F1.9 prime lens, which seemed to be getting more scarce as time went by.

The camera body is the same size as my Canon S95. The lens is a bit larger, so the overall size is bigger. However, the User Interface is similar to the K5 and the IstDs (before that) and one which I have been used to using for 8 years. 

I am also planning on getting the K mount adapter so that I can use my existing K mount primes with this camera. The macro and telephoto possibilities seem endless when using this camera with these lenses.

I will have more to post on this camera in the weeks to come.

Global citizenship is conferred on those who have lived in a variety of countries, and who don’t identify with any one culture. I am such a person. Having lived in Jamaica, Canada and Japan, I have been exposed to First World/Third World, East and West, North and South. This has lead to a rich living experience, open-mindedness and curiosity about the world around me. This variety of living conditions in human landscapes is coupled with equally diverse travels in natural landscapes from the jungles of South East Asia and South America to the Arctic tundra; tropical beaches to the Himalayas, resulting in an incredible journey through life itself.
