I saw one the other day. I have no use for one but what a little jewel. If I were a rich man I'd buy one just because it's so tiny and pretty.

I saw one today. In the woods.

There was a guy taking photos of the devastation being wreaked by the loggers at the moment. At first I thought it was an i10 but when he asked if he could photograph the dog we got talking - and yes it was a Q. Tiny thing. He was pleased to meet another Pentax owner. He also has a K-5 and a 645D .
He bought the Q on a recent trip to New York, on a whim.

I'm not sure if he had more money than sense or not . He never managed a photo of the dog either - Timber just wasn't in the mood .

A photo of a "moody" dog would be good to admire

You walk through the woods where logging is going on and have to keep shouting 'Timber' to get your dog back. Surely there must be some sort of law against that!

They weren't actually logging this morning, so it was OK. Yesterday every path I took was blocked by a logging machine, so poor Timber spent most of his walk on a lead.
He didn't take to Mr more-money-than-sense and kept turning his back on him or wandering off, so Mr MMTS gave up and went back to broken trees and unexpected wide open spaces.

I am sure it is good for the wood - that's what they tell us, but it is a pain while they are there and not good for the buzzards - several of their eating trees have been felled .

More chaos there this afternoon, but at least it is still dry - tomorrow's promised rain will really make it awful to walk there.

Anyway having seen a Q in the flesh it is too small for me. I like a small camera but that is ridiculous. Next week's lottery win will get spent on something else .

Another £100-£150 off and it'd be priced about right I reckon!

Am still tempted though...
