Pentax Ricoh has expanded its Q system with the addition of the Q10 body and adapter allowing the use of K-mount lenses. The Q10 features a slightly redesigned body and updated 12.4MP, 1/2.3”, back-lit CMOS sensor.
Improvements include faster operation and autofocus performance, the company says. A 15-45mm F2.8 fast 80-250mm equivalent telephoto zoom, the Pentax 06 Telephoto Zoom lens, has also been added. An adapter allows mounting and manual focussing of K-mount lenses on Q-mount bodies. The Q10 will cost around $700 with the 02 Standard kit zoom, with the fast zoom costing around $300 and the K-mount adapter roughly $250.
