    2nd size from smallest should work fine.
    I have that as default on my Q.
    Hmm. I always set my Q AF points to the smallest. Seem to work ok with the 01 lens. But I do agree that the lock on is not always. But seem the DOF is larger than my K5 and K01. I just focus on anything which is close to the less contrasty area.. Seem to work well. lolx..

    But I will try your advice also to see the difference.

    Hmm.. JK, sound like you own the Q10 already woh :X

    Agree with JK , tried the second smallest area or cross area, works as well on the low contrast wall.

    I think Q is really my daily camera now. Easily left in my bag. It has become my food shot camera! Think i should take other stuff other than food.

    Ambush at Plaza Singapura. with Doyle :X




    Ok.. I think i must really stop eating too much.. haha..

    Was out shooting by the beach, testing my Pk-Q adaptor.
    Took less than 30pix during a period of 1 hour.
    I was out in the open, no shade.
    Mainly taking pix of faraway ships and airplanes overhead.

    After some shots, I notice that a red thermometer symbol on the display.
    Guess the camera was over heating.

    Question, does anyone has similar experience?
    I'm using a white Q, if it matters

    No video.
    My guess is because my 90mm is acting as a magnifying glass and directing heat to the sensor. Something like using magnifying glass to start fire.

    Dunno...

    I posted my overheat issue on Pentax forum.
    Here's the link.
