I've not been lurking around Pentax fora much lately. I noticed, however, that SRS has no Q bodies or lenses listed. Has the Q been discontinued? Did I miss the news?

Thanks, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I think they switched all Q production over to making 'Green Metal Hot-Shoe Covers' for the GRii

I spoke to SRS late 2015 and they confirmed Pentax had stopped making the Qs.

I think there's a thread on here about it.

It does seem a shame given how much development must have gone into the cameras and the selection of lenses.

Still, it's a useful camera and it doesn't stop us enjoying it. I use mine wherever a DSLR would be frowned upon. A Q-S1 doesn't even raise an eyebrow.
Best regards, John

I've still got the original (white) Q and would never get rid of it.
I love the build quality and neat design, it produces amazing photos for such a small sensor! particularly with the 01 and 06 lenses.
It's a classic
Regards,
Michael
