    Three things I can say at least:

    2. AF is really fast for a small camera like this, I feel it's faster than GF1+20/1.7 combo (which is considered to be pretty fast for an EVIL camera)
    3. Photos are really really sharp even wide open

    I'll try to post some photos and hands on experiences later on ...

    i really felt that i had a much more fun time taking pictures before i got to know about dynamic range, depth of field, diffraction, crop factor, MTF curves and all kinds of scientific and pseudo-scientific terms that does not necessarily improve one's photos, but makes for great conversation...

    the Q takes pretty nice pictures. strange that many pple would rather focus on small sensor rather than nice pictures.

    it's 176390.357/288260 = 61%

    q is 39% smaller than gf1, not 10%!
    not to mention the big lens needed to cover bigger sensor size....

    not pentax dslr, not q, you seem very happy to criticize pentax? at least don't put misleading figures, it will only embarrass yourself.
    I'm thinking that he's talking about camera size?

    That said, Q body might not be that different, but lens size factored in, it's definitely a lot more pocketable..

    Hi Fengwei,
    Thanks for sharing your first look but do upload some photos under varying light conditions when you can. Would be very in interested in how the camera performs under low light. While the common understanding is small sensors are noisy, technology is advancing so I won't be surprised they did wonders on a small sensor.

    Got an email regarding Q's lenses and accessories. Here are the available dates and suggested retail prices (shop prices can be considerably cheaper), either are already available or will be here on 15 Sept.
