One of the best cameras to carry everywhere!,

This review is from: Pentax Q Compact System Camera with 8.5mm Lens Kit - Black (Electronics)
The Pentax Q is a gem! Excellent classic looking camera with controls and functionality like an advanced DSLR yet in a small magnesium-alloy body with interchangeable lenses. Unless you are a pixel peeper do not worry about the sensor size. The image quality is very good, very close to my E-PL2 which is amazing for a small sensor.
- smallest compact system with interchangeable lenses
- great standard standard prime lens with f/1.9 maximum aperture
- great image quality despite the sensor size
- built is very close to my Ricoh GR Digital
- controls are like a Pentax DSLR
Things that could be improved:
- more proper (not toy) lenses like a 28mm and 85mm equivalent prime
- include a lens hood
- make automatic distortion correction work with DNG files in Aperture 3 (this might be Apple's job)
Overall, a highly recommended camera and system!
