PentaxNew Pentax Q-mount lenses for Pentax Q system camera : The Pentax Q digital camera features the newly developed Q-mount, with a mount diameter shortened to approximately two-thirds of that of the conventional Pentax K-mount. This was made possible by reducing the flange back (the distance from the lens mount surface to the image sensor surface) to nearly one-fifth of that of the Pentax K-mount, as well as by optimizing the size of image circle of its lenses to be proportioned to the size of the compact image sensor. The new Pentax Q-mount system also eliminates an optical finder, mirror box, focusing plate and Auto Focus sensor, making the Pentax Q body the smallest & lightest in its class.

The Pentax Q body has been made of magnesium-alloy, which gives an elegant, high-quality texture to the compact, lightweight camera body while improving its durability. Besides the introduction of the Pentax Q mirror-less camera, Pentax also introduced additional Qmount lenses. Each Pentax Q-mount lens offers outstanding value at an affordable price so users may produce a variety of distinctive, dramatic pictures. Each Q-mount lens from Pentax features manual focus operation, fixed aperture and lightweight lens mount minus a lens shutter unit to reduce size and weight.
