Excerpt: The tele function is unheard of.<br />I use the Q 10 with a Leica Noctilux 1/50mm.<br />Thanks to the crop factor of 5.54, I can work with 1/277mm.<br />Sharpness...only depends on the lens.<br />If you attach the world's sharpest lens at all, the Leica 50mm APO ASPH,<br />you get a still very satisfying 2/277mm, and the shots are sharper than<br />with any camera CaNikon has on offer.
Summary: i got the pentax q10 impulsively two of months ago at the very end of its life cycle in the stores. was cheap but from any serious point of view a mistake. the camera with the 02 lens is one of the worst cameras I ever owned only compared with another cheap pentax optio point and shot.
Summary: This is a really great value. It has so much more versatile than a plain jane point and shoot camera. The ability to add lens to adapt it to different conditions is a big step up. I love the many features especially the SCR mode which allows you to quickly tailor the camera to the different lighting and camera uses. For example a Portrait mode to help flesh tones look better and a Macro mode to allow close up photos.
Summary: This item exceeded my expectations! I was expecting so little out of this so small of a design camera! Instead, it took near DSLR quality pictures and is equipped with DSLR features! Further, it has interchangeable lenses for the user's enjoyment and creativity!
