Pentax Q sales 'disappointing'

Pentax has admitted that its first compact system camera, the Pentax Q, is not selling as well as the company had hoped.

Speaking at the launch of the Pentax K-01, the company’s newest compact system camera the General Manager for Pentax UK, Jonathan Martin, told our sister website TechRadar, “Though it [the Q] has been well received, we haven’t seen the numbers that we would have liked to.”

However, Martin added that Pentax is committed to the Q and plans to keep developing accessories for the camera, as well as promote it with key retailers.

The Pentax Q was introduced in September last year and is the world’s smallest interchangeable lens camera, offering a 12-million-pixel, 1/2.3-inch sensor.
