In 2012 or later. Three sensible lenses in development and one very silly one.

I can't really add much to what's on the diagram. Three are self-explanatory. From what I understand the mount cap lens is a bit of plastic with a hole in.

The mount cap lens is a pinhole lens. Now it's quite difficult to make a good pinhole, so a ready manufactured one could be quite interesting. A proper wooden pinhole camera will cost over 100, so the idea of making such a lens for the Q opens up a whole new world.

I actually like the way the Q opens up all sorts of possibilities of experimentation.
Best regards, John
