Q at QVC for $298!!

Do I see it correctly that qvc has the q (in white only) for $298 -- it's double that everywhere else. Just wondering.

Yes. Only $298/payment.

But how many payments?

If it's too good....

Probably a misprint... it happens from time to time, and occasionally you even get the item for the "wrong" price.

Wow . I was on the fence but this pushed me over. Thanks for the heads up

The K-01 will have to wait now.

Hell, buy 2 and sell one. You should be able to get enough to almost completely pay for both and you can still get the K-01.

It clearly is a misprint. The new P&S is listed too - they seem to have reversed the prices:

Pentax Optio 16MP, 20X Optical Zoom Digital Camera Kit
  • QVC Price: $989.96
  • Featured Price:
  • $899.96

I'll be the guinea pig and let you know how it goes. Delivery is set for the end of the month.
I have 30 days if it is the wrong thing.

I ordered it too. As you say, if it's the wrong thing, I can always return it - no harm, no foul.

I'm right there with you. I had zero interest in the Q, but at that price I jumped on it.

Good luck. I was tempted simply by the price but I do NOT need another camera, particularly one with a different mount. Still, it's tempting!

That's an insane price. I'd be tempted to buy one and flip it. But the Q is not a high volume item on the online auction sites. And I'm already sitting on gear I need to sell. Hmm... A great price though if you want to get into the Q system.

I don't see listed what lens it comes with? Maybe body only?
