I was looking for a logarithmic (ten) scale for vector data too...

I think (for vector data) it would need some inputs though, like:
- number of classes
- minimum exponent (optionally based on data minimum)
- maximum exponent (optionally based on data minimum)
- if minimum and maximum should be ranges or just 'bigger then' and 'smaller then' as borders of the ranges

A nice default color ramp to use would be range between HSV colors between 0 and 0.6 (see screendump for examples):
see http://doc.qt.io/qt-4.8/qcolor.html about HSV coloring

But should maybe be a separate feature request :-)
