I purchased this lens as a compact alternative to the Panasonic wide angle for Micro Four Thirds. This Pentax lens is about half the size of the aforementioned Panasonic which makes it much more fun to use in my opinion. Whilst it doesn t offer such an extreme wide angle perspective as the Panasonic 17.5mm vs 14mm I m much more inclined to take it with me due to the smaller size.
Like the other lenses in the Q system the compact design and high quality finish entice me to pick it up and take pictures! The images captured by the lens are very sharp with rich natural colours.
Microglobe s service was excellent - the item arrived in under 24 hours with the lowest price from a UK dealer.

This lens is everything I expected. Built to the same standard as the other Q mount lenses it extends the range into the wide angle area giving 21mm equivalent on the original Q camera and even wider on the Q7. Sharpness is good.
