    Wow, that sucks seriously! I know I deserve to get expelled for asking but how much is it without the 06 lens? :P

    Yeah but I doubt there is a huge demand for those lenses.

    Hi, I would like to ask if I were to get Q10 from local retailer, the warranty will be from local retailer or from Pentax itself? Cuz I'm not sure if there's any Pentax retailer in SG. Thanks!!!

    Just sharing some shots with the Q.. not the Q10. But I believe the sensor difference wont be much difference....

    Shot with 01 lens.. Close focus. Good for food shots.. (Shot in Jpeg)


    Shot with 02 Lens.. Quite nice starburst to me.. (shot in Raw)


    Shot with 02 Lens at 3200iso. (Raw and PP) - Not bad for such a small sensor. Good enough for web, i felt.

    1. Max flash sync speed is 1/15 on Q and 1/30 on Q10.
    (not a big deal if you make sure the ambient does not contribute to your exposure; flash is instant and stops motion )
    2. On 3rd party adapters, you can only use PTTL compatible flashes. (with the flash set to 'OFF' - strange setting parameter, but thats how it is)

    With the Pentax OEM adapter most of these issues go away :
    1. Max Flash sync speed is 1/250
    2. Generic flashes with center hot shoe contact work as normal (ie. no need for a PTTL compatible flash)


    I'd also like to point out that I've taken all my macro shots with the 3rd party adapter (warts and all) so, its doable.
