Summary: I was a little concerned when I first purchased the camera because I wanted to take advantage of the 'lightening deal' and only had 15 min to make my decision. I knew Pentax was a very reliable manufacturer but I am not a professional photographer by any means. I was looking for a point and shoot style camera with room to grow into more of a hobby, taking advantage of some of the manual features. I was extremely impressed with the camera once it arrived.
Summary: I've loved the look of the Q since it came out, but at first release it was just overpriced. Now the price has come down, I've bought one. And I revise my earlier opinion of it being overpriced, it's that good. Now though, it's just a bargain. It's pretty much a tiny, full-featured, SLR. I love my big SLR but it often gets left at home, or it's too much hassle to pull out of its bag, or it intimidates my friends to have me shove an enormous camera in their faces.
Summary: I've been using this camera for a few weeks now and it's brill! Easy to use and takes great photos..... I already own the Q1 and so trying the Q2 has been easy .... Pros Lovely to look at Great to hold Nice and compact Great lens, an improvement on the Q1 as it comes with a zoom lens Lens from Q1 fits on it Cons None really. I think it's just personal preference on the look and feel of the camera So, overall a good buy and my photos are getting better!
Summary: I have bought this camera package for my wife. I have a Pentax K7 myself and have always liked Pentax from Spotmatic onwards. This camera is so compact and versatile that I have actually bought a second one for myself, although mine is the Q and not the Q10! The image quality is excellent, as long as you control the ISO setting, but that is what anyone who understands the film background would say.I have taken a number of sample shots and have been well impressed with...
Perfect lightweight second camera for D-SLR owners

Summary: I own a Canon D-SLR, and while it's a fantastic tool sometimes there's a need to take something along that's less bulky but still capable. The Q10 fits that niche nicely. The camera body is tiny, barely any larger than a pack of cards. With the 5-15mm standard zoom supplied in this kit that grows quite a bit but will still fit in my jacket pocket - and I can imagine would be great for an evening out in most handbags. It's also extremely light.
Summary: Let me get one thing out in the public domain, I'm not very talented with a camera. In fact I'm probably one of the least proficient photographers in the world. My holiday recollections are filled with burry, badly composed, finger obscured nonsense. It's like I only go on holiday to awkward out of focus huge finger land. Perhaps I do. This camera doesn't help with an almost complete lack of talent.

Summary: Pentax Q10 Compact System Camera with 5 to 15mm Lens Kit - Black I use a camera as part of my work, I'm a full time seller of Hi-Fi equipment via the internet using auctions sites as my main outlet, quality picture can sell a product.

Excerpt: A la hora de comprar lo mejor es comparar y asi sorpresas evitar..... Este dicho me lo decía mi abuela y con el paso del tiempo me he dado cuenta de que tenía mas razón que un santo y en la actualidad es una de las máximas de mi vida a la hora de realizar cualquier compra. De esta cámara destacaría los siguientes aspectos: CALIDAD DE LAS FOTOS.
Summary: Dank meiner wunderbaren Freunde bin ich seit meinem letzten Geburtstag stolzer Besitzer dieser Pentax Q10 + 5-15mm Kamera, die man - ja, natürlich habe ich nach dem Preis vorher recherchiert (ich wollte sie mir eigentlich selbst kaufen) - für knappe 300€ im Internet bei WEXcameras und anderen Seiten, sowie bei Amazon bestellen oder in Läden wie Media Markt und Saturn kaufen kann.
