Re: Long term Q3


I've only had the Q3 for about a month, but I've owned the Q, Q2 and Q2M before, but it has been a good long while since I owned a Q camera, so I'm very much coming back to it with fresh eyes.

I honestly wish I hadn't bought the Q3. While I really enjoy the image quality, I find it a bit too slow to use for my tastes. Compared to Sony, the AF is frustrating. It is rather slow to operate (turn on, change modes, etc.). I subscribe to the "less is more" theory, but I find that having a Sony a7RV set up correctly with custom buttons is actually more intuitive and less cumbersome to operate than the Q3.

I fully understand that for the right use cases, it may be a "perfect" camera, but it just isn't the right tool for me to have in my toolbox, especially at that price.
