Comments about Q7 Compact Mirrorless Camera with 5-15mm and 15-45mm Lenses (Silver):

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. One note of caution for any prospective buyers, this camera is tiny, therefore it's controls are tiny. For shooters with big hands it might be too tiny. If this is a concern, I would recommend trying to find one at a store first so that you can make sure it's usable for you.

Comments about Q7 Compact Mirrorless Camera with 5-15mm and 15-45mm Lenses (Black):

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. This is particularly true of the 06 which has exceptional IQ. I have even managed BIFs with it (not easy). It is best in good light. An essential addition is the 01 lens which is a f/1.9 39mm equivalent which makes the camera pocketable. The 01 has striking IQ and good low light capability. A special characteristic of the small camera is the 4.5 crop factor which means that if you use the adapter with a standard lens the focal length is multiplied by 4.5, so a 300 mm lens becomes 1300mm super telephoto. Amazing results. By the way I also have a K3 dslr and a Sony A6000 mirroless which I use for more demanding tasks.
