Some reviews (via various online sources):
I find the Pentax Q a very small full featured and capable camera. Startup time for my unit is on par with all my other big bodied DSLR cameras. The focus speed is certainly not the fastest but mine will focus within 1.5 seconds max with kit lens. All the normal manual and automatic features are available that I normally use from my Pentax K-r or other.
Almost straight out of the box, the Q endears itself to the user–it’s so cute, so well-built, and so fun and intuitive to use. The many creative filters and incredible customization options allow for a tremendous amount of flexibility and creative expression–if you’re one that enjoys tinkering to get a signature “look” you will adore the Q.
I choose this Pentax for my wife who wants a nice camera to take pictures to accompany the articles she writes for a local journal. It has an easy functionality yet boast additional features to allow for artistic development. That was a big reason this choice. The compact size is great for her small hands, the 3″ screen is a killer, allows a detailed view of the shot. The Auto function was very easy and help my wife overcome her fear of a camera which can be used manually too. Also, the HD videos are stunning.
