Summary: I dug it. Full controll, sharp lenses, pretty good noise, but it just doesn't match up to competitors. Let's be honest though, you're getting this because it's cheaper than most of the m4/3 cameras, most of which are more pocketable than this.
Summary: Great little compact camera! I'm looking forward to a longer lens, but impressed, so far, with the smaller zoom. I carry my camera on my motorcycle, and this camera fits well into the tank bag.
Excerpt: This camera gets a bad rap because folks like the metal original Q or the larger sensor in the Q7 and Q-S1. But the fact is that it's a really nice camera. I'm consistently amazed by the image quality of the Q10, and as so many others have said, there's just something fun about using a Q-series...
Pros: Small, light. Easy to grab and take with you
Summary: First, this camera is small. Smaller than it looks. This camera is also filled with features that work very well. I have used all kinds of cameras. I am impressed with what Pentax has included in this camera. It feels well built. The controls are quite intuitive, but there are so many.
