. I thought this just added icing to the cake - you know, the cake that all the Pentax is DOOMED folks are eating about now.
ROFLMAO!!

the announcements certainly have been numerous (with a few long awaited items as well. that 560 5.6 looks pretty sweet, add the 1.4 tc to that long moaned for lis as well )

the Q probably just entered it's last 6 -8 months of life cycle with this announcement (and local pricing hovering at $550-570 would tend to indicate that as well. Bet we see a Q2 at Photokina (along with a whole lot of other stuff)

It's shaping up to be a very active year

I would say it is the nicest one compared with the white and the black.

If this was a original color choice when introduced, I'd probably have chosen it. . .but both black and white look good also. I have no problem with the appearance of the Q. It looks like a camera.

Has anyone heard any updates on this? Was it already released or does it have a known date? What about price?

Another thing I was thinking about was that if it is sold with the #2 lens, how would you ever get the standard #1 lens... My understanding is that is not sold outside the kit.

Thanks in advance for any info!

I suspect this will be Japan only? I asked around here in Europe and the message I get is it isn't coming to Europe... :-(

Wow, the Q looks great in Silver/Black! If it had focus-peaking I would be all over that little retro-spy camera! Maybe in Q2...

Thanks for the responses. I must have misunderstood the press release (was thinking it would be available in the U.S. as well.) Haven't seen it listed at B&H, Adorama, or even the Pentax Webstore... so probably not coming here.

I don't know if anyone else will care, but here is the response I got from Pentax USA (basically confirms what was already said):

Thank you for contacting PENTAX.
The Q Silver Limited Edition is a limited production model (1600 units announced) that may only be available in Japan. We have not heard if the camera will be offered in the US market.
If you are in need of further assistance, please respond to this email or call our technical support center at 800-877-0155.

Sincerely,
Randall S.
