- Pentax's petite interchangeable lens shooter, the Q, has finally made its way through our lab tests.
Pentax Q Mirrorless Digital Camera Review$799.00
We found there was a great deal of chromatic aberration at the f/1.9 aperture, though this falls off dramatically through the aperture range. By f/8.0, chromatic aberration is almost nonexistant in our test images, with only a very slight purple glow vertically.
The 8mm f/1.9 kit lens included with the Pentax Q suffered quite a bit in our distortion tests, with a 3.44% barrel distortion on average in our test shots across the aperture range. This was with the camera's in-camera distortion correction disabled, which is standard procedure for our tests. It should be noted that distortion does not factor into our scoring for an interchangeable lens camera, and we found the in-camera distortion correction reined in this error significantly, though it was still somewhat noticeable.
