I've stumbled upon a quick review of the Pentax Q which is quite objective but made in August, so the price was still a bit expensive.
Then the guy concludes: "And second, were it to sell for, say $300 OR $400, it would be the "perfect backup camera.""

Well, now I think it is

Pentax Q vs Nikon V1 vs Sony NEX-5N Best Mirrorless Cameras 2012

(Note: the k-01 is #2 of this shootout, not bad either )
Very nice. And for $299 with 01 Standard Prime it's a bargain IMHO. With an adapter its an amazing Macro and incredible Telephoto player.

The answer to the thread title is - No.

Totally agree! This camera is a steal at that price point. Looking forward to eventually picking up an official adapter and going to town with some K lenses.
