The Q with the DA55-300 and DA 18-250 - PentaxForums.com

Note that the base results are at -4 to sharpening and contrast as well as being shot in JPEG.

Pretty impressive results considering the reach involved and its only on a commercial zoom like DA55-300 used wide open.
Hopefully the TS will eventually try the Q with much better lenses like DA200, DA300, etc which are much better than the 55-300 in optical resolution.
If results are good, I'll certainly get one once prices drop.

Those are pretty cool. I'd love to give it a try too.

If only we could find the adapter easily here...

The TS got it from jinfinance who is a regular seller on ebay.
Stuff is from China, I've got a M42>P-K adapter from him before, so seller is ok.

We should ask Emjay to bring in some of those, and bundle one adapter w/ each Q sold ;)
