_
"Sony nex has good image quality, but it's bigger and bulkier to carry around."

Lens

Lens:
"If you want a normal lens, the 02 Zoom when zoomed all the way out is a good choice, but you will sacrifice speed by 1 stop."
_
"The interchangeable lenses do feel kind of cheap, as well as the focus ring, but the quality of the glass itself is just fine."
_
"The only reason this does not get 5 stars is due to the limitations in speed from the sensor size, as well as the relative difficulty and rarity of lenses and attachments that come for this small size."
_
"Better Focus speed, lens selection, ease of use, etc."
_
"Zoom lens was also good in terms of image quality and more versatile, but 50mm equivalent view of the 01 prime is very useful too and just simple."

Quality

Quality:
"The quality of the pictures are not bad; they're good."
_
"The interchangeable lenses do feel kind of cheap, as well as the focus ring, but the quality of the glass itself is just fine."
_
"As for the image quality of Pentax Q, it's very good."
_
"I have no complaints about the image quality."
_
"Yes, you are able to get some rich quality pictures from Nex and Canon DSLR with larger censors in ideal situations, but in normal situations and for most people who aren't professionally skilled, you will get mixed bags of results on any camera regardless of the sensor size."
_
"Zoom lens was also good in terms of image quality and more versatile, but 50mm equivalent view of the 01 prime is very useful too and just simple."

Sensor

Sensor:
"However, this is, without a doubt, the best camera for a sensor of this size."
_
"Don't read the paper specs and do the knee jerk reaction of oh it's a small 1 2.3'' sensor, so it must not be any good."
_
"Certainly is in not as good as an APC size sensor."
_
"Chromatic aberration in the system lenses for this camera is minimal, and the noise profile of the sensor is an easy fix in post processing."
_
"The only reason this does not get 5 stars is due to the limitations in speed from the sensor size, as well as the relative difficulty and rarity of lenses and attachments that come for this small size."
_
"Pentax Q and Nikon 1 Series even with much smaller sensor are great camera for that purpose."
_
"But there are times when having a greater depth of field is nice (and with a smaller sensor, that is the default situation)."
_
"So if I'm taking pics of a party where light is low, if I'm shooting at 1.9 w a aps-c sensor, there's a good chance that if the picture has more than one person in it, one person will be out of focus if the other person is."

_
"The camera performs pretty good at high ISO's, which is surprising considering the size of the image sensor."
_
"Buy the case Amazon recommended, it will be like a small accessory goes with your stylish dresses."
_
"Initially, I had concerns about the picture quality of the camera as well as wondering if it was too small to use comfortably."
