Pentax Q in a Kit With Just the 5-15mm Zoom
New kit available for pre-order
By PF Staff in Pentax Announcements on Jun 6, 2012
The Pentax Q has been available for a while as a kit with the 47mm (eqv.) prime and the 24-85mm (eqv.) zoom. The prime in this context seemed quite superfluous (our tests showed the zoom of equivalent in image quality to the prime) and just added to the price.
Luckily, Pentax is now releasing a new kit consisting of the Q and the zoom only. This new kit retails for $699; the savings are thus about $50 compared to buying the two items individually.
