Excerpt: It was just an addition to the Q-S1 cam, it is a black one. Originally I planned to sell this lens as soon as I have received the cam, but after some shots I was that impressed, that I kept it.
Pros: Very Sharp, very wide on Q7 and Q-S1
Cons: could be faster at all, or at least on the long end
Excerpt: I got this as part of a dual zoom lens Q7 kit. I bought the camera primarily for high magnification use with legacy K mount lenses, but decided to spring for the kit so I had a couple of normal Q-system lenses to play with for snapshots.
Excerpt: Got this lens with my original Q and continue to use it with my Q7. It's a good lens just not a great lens. For a time, it was the only Q-system zoom and it just wasn't wide enough or long enough. The 06 and 08 lenses have improved that situation.
Excerpt: My first copy came with the Q. Photos were a bit soft with poor contrast. I got a second copy with my Q7 and it is very good. Still a bit large for the Q, but the image quality from wide to mid-range is nearly a match for my 01 8.5mm prime.
