Pentax Q Mirrorless Digital Camera Review
Pentax's petite interchangeable lens shooter, the Q, has finally made its way through our lab tests.
The Pentax Q is one of several new mirrorless systems launching this year and it differentiates itself from the pack in a big way: by being as small as can be. While the Q is not as thin as your typical point-and-shoot camera, its height, width and image sensor are all similar to your standard compact camera. That puts it at a bit of a disadvantage against other interchangeable lens cameras, but compared to other small cameras it offers the promise of custom, higher quality lenses that are suited to a specific need. The result is a compact system camera that, while not as strong a performer as other cameras in its price range, will appeal to those looking for interchangeable lenses in as compact a body as possible.
Before you buy the Pentax Q, take a look at these other interchangeable lens cameras.
