Pentax 05 Toy Lens Telephoto

 

The Pentax 05 Toy Lens Telephoto is a very light and inexpensive toy lens for Q cameras.

Very small and light. Inexpensive. Produces pleasantly lo-fi images.

Not that sharp. Narrow f/8 aperture. Manual focus only.

Pentax Q10

 

The Pentax Q10 is a tiny interchangeable lens camera with a point-and-shoot sized sensor, but it doesn't perform as well as other cameras in its price range.

Very compact. Excellent access to manual controls. Raw shooting support.

Sluggish. Kit lens is soft at maximum zoom. Images lack detail at very high ISOs. No EVF option.

Pentax Q10 Review

 

The tiny new Pentax Q10 is one of the smallest and lightest interchangeable lens cameras currently available. At its heart is a new back illuminated 12.4 megapixel 1/2.3-inch CMOS image sensor and the super-compact Q-mount lens system. The Pentax Q10...

The Pentax Q10 is a minor improvement on last year's original Q model, most notably offering a slight improvement in image quality, snappier focusing and a more ergonomic handgrip. The biggest "upgrade", however, is undoubtedly the realistic price-tag...

Pentax Q10 Review

 

Pentax is not a company to sit quietly on the sidelines and watch the traffic go by. The most recent and startling example of this was the introduction of the Marc Newson designed camera, the K-01.
