Pentax Q Mirrorless Digital Camera Review$799.00
We found the 8mm kit lens on the Pentax Q to be decent, with very solid vertical and horizontal sharpness in the center of the frame. The lens does have a limited aperture range of f/1.9-8.0 due to the camera's small sensor size, but sharpness does falloff dramatically at both f/8.0 and f/1.9 near the edges of the frame. The Q also adds quite a bit of sharpening at the default level, though it varies depending on the exposure setting. At f/1.9 sharpness is upped dramatically in-camera, but a quick shift down to f/3.5 limits this (as the lens naturally returns sharper images), and at f/8 sharpness begins to fall off with the Q doing nothing to enhance it at the default setting. More on how we test sharpness.
