Yeah.. if it was Q7, it will be fantastic even if it was more a bit higher in price than USD169.

The main thing I want is the macro tele lens.
Its going to rev up my macro taking w/o the hassle of a diopter (eg. Raynox) or the large size of an adapted macro lens.


As for the new Q, I really don't know what else I'd want to add to it.
The logical way forward seems to be a larger sensor with the option to auto crop the current lenses to the current 1 1/7" sensor crop factor.
Wifi and all that, don't add much to a camera for photo taking imho. (thats me, since I'm not imaginative on how to use wifi control on a camera other than for some sort of sneak shot?? )
