Hmm... I'm still struggling to see the benefit of a compact camera,with interchangeable lenses- it somehow renders the "compact" point,useless- especially given the limitations of a 1/2.3" sensor....and it's rather hefty price tag.....!
Image quality seems pretty decent for a small sensor camera,however- though is it any better- or indeed as good as,say,the more compact and less expensive Canon S100...?
Will be interesting to see how this release pan's out over the next couple of months....

IMHO, IQ is in pretty awesome for a camera with this size sensor, but it does not equal or exceed the larger sensor compact models like the PowerShot S90/95/100, G11/12, Lumix DMC-LX5, Olympus XZ-1, etc.

The benefit of the Q is in it's extreme portability and ability to shoot creatively with lenses- no other P&S can offer this degree of flexibility- hence the lofty price tag......agreed IQ is not as high as others but the ability to capture an image with small lenses is a benefit.
