Nice to hear from you, David
Thanks for letting us know about the outcome - I am sure you made the best decision - still loving my Q.
Opinion about the Pentax Q
I'm probably bringing a post back from the dead, I don't even know if I'll be getting any answers but I found this link searching precisely for an opinion about the Pentax Q.. Do you regret buying it? I found it some time ago and I instantaneously fell in love but I'm afraid of buying it so long after it was released. I also found the fujifilm x10 today but I do still prefer the looks of the Pentax Q, and it just barely fits in the budget I have left for a new digital camera. I have a pentax optio rs1000 and its pictures are not completely terrible, but they're just not good enough, I'm afraid I'm going for the looks too much just like when I bought my current pentax camera! (I'm sorry about the terrible english translation).
