    I just received the firmware update for my Q so that I
    can use the new 06 Tele and the K-Q adapter :cool:

    Cheers,

    This firmware also introduces focus peaking for the original Q, making the differences with the new model marginal. Oh happy day! :cool:

    Alright, I admit I'm an idiot, but done all that, turned on focus peaking, but I can't see anything interesting happening. Shouldn't there be a red outline or something? :confused:

    Red is Sony's implementation. You should see a shimmering effect to highlight the in-focus areas.

    Thanks, Zou.
    Doesn't stand out as well as a colour would, but there you go.

    I've now paid for my 06 lens (and hood):). Now, I just
    gotta wait for it to arrive:rolleyes:

    Are you saying that the Q and the Q10 are now so close as to make the Q a better buy? I refer to the firmware update of course.

    Jack, may I ask if you have printed anything from the Q? Can it be used up to A3, I read a review that said A4 was the better limit for quality. I used to get OK A3's from my K10D.

    Sorry for my absence for so long, I have been swamped with work and other distractions. :)

    Hi David,

    I've printed a few pics from my Q ... but the one below is, IMVHO, one of the cooler pics I've shot (of late) and I printed in to 12x8 and, bear in mind, it has been cropped using about/maybe 60% of the actual image. I'll try dig up the original pic and post it here :)

    And, FWIW, I did the firmware upgrade for my Q and it's been ticketyboo ever since :)

    Cheers,

    Jack
