No comments Sad

I sad to see so few people excited about a new Q, all right it just a posh looking updated Q7, but still, its great to see the Q line carrying on.

The Q's a great camera system, really fun and a joy to use. shame the "small sensor" puts people off. Remember it's not size that counts, but how you use it Tongue
