Supreme Telephoto/Macro camera!

Steve Nunez "www.stevenunez.com", Amazon
16 January 2015
  • Summary: The Pentax Q7 features the slightly larger sensor to that of the Q and Q10. The new sensor is much improved in noise performance hence better low light photos and video. Some camera enthusiasts dismiss the Q series because of their small sensors but those small sensors have become the very reason why some dedicated enthusiasts have really embraced the Q; small sensors produce great depth of field, therefore large areas stay in focus.

Fun and compact

Siggy, B&H Photo
20 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I love this tiny camera. It gives me the ability to change lenses and shoot RAW and has full manual exposure if I want it, but also lets me always have my camera on me everywhere I go. The images I make with it are more than sufficient quality for the kind of photography I enjoy. That the adapter to let me use my K-mount lenses gives me even more options and gives me what amounts to super-telephoto reach is just icing on the cake.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder, Poor in Low Light

Know what you are looking for

  • Summary: For the right person this is a 5-star camera, it may however disappoint others. As a little background, I shoot with a Canon DSLR system, with a bunch of lenses which produce great images and a lot of flexibility, however, it is quite heavy and big, and I don't like to carry it around with me all of the time. I was looking for something small, but still flexible and fun to use with good image quality.

"Besstest" camera ever in size and function.

Glenn A. Martinez "Glenn Martinez Olomana Gardens", Amazon
18 August 2014
  • Summary: The camera is great, unbelievable. I was a dedicated Canon EOS til I got the Penax K-50...great camera, but to much to carry on a daily basis. Watched YouTube, saw Bounty, and his rant on the "Q" being the Bestest camera in the world. So I bought it, and have proceed to buy 80 % of the options that fit it. Amazing camera.

Surprisingly good

KimberlyJ, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: Nice camera. Picture quality is good, especially for the sensor size. The 02 zoom is a great multi purpose lens. Pick up the 01 prime as well for extremely sharp images. I purchased the camera because it was compact and could use a variety of lenses. I did not expect it to be as good as it is. Plus, it's fun and easy to use.

A pro camera system in your pocket

Chris Feola, Amazon
16 July 2014
  • Summary: A go-everywhere system that fits in your pockets, yet yields professional results. A little background; I was a professional photojournalist (newspapers, shooting mostly black & white), so I'm quite fussy about cameras. I had a Pentax Q, and loved it; it gives tremendous results with a little care. I skipped the Q10; it didn't seem like much of an upgrade. I wasn't sure if the Q7 would be; now my only regret is waiting so long.

Amazing little camera

Mikesul, B&H Photo
23 June 2014
  • Excerpt: The Q7 is a nice improvement on the original Q. I want a small carry everywhere camera which I can adapt to the specific task whether at work, home or in the field. The interchangeable lenses make that possible. For hiking I carry the two lenses in this kit in a small belt bag with extra batteries. With the 02 and 06 I am covered from 23mm to 205mm. The image quality when the camera is used carefully is excellent.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life

There is a lot of bang for the buck in this camera.

Waldemar Winkler "WAW", Amazon
15 June 2014
  • Summary: I realized I needed a small travel camera while in S. America. I had taken a Pentax K-01 mirrorless camera which turned out to be too cumbersome in many situations. I researched this camera for nearly six months before making my purchase. The Pentax Q7 is the smallest interchangeable lens camera available, period. It can be used as a handy point and shoot camera, but spend a little time with it and you will discover it has the flexibility of a fully featured DSLR.
