Pentax Q and lenses - Is this a good price for Canada?

Just found these "deals" from a reputable Canadian seller:

$379.00 Pentax Q plus 8.5mm lens
$599.00 Pentax Q plus 8.5mm lens and 8.5-15 zoom lens.

What do you think?

Sound good to me. Get it with the zoom as I just did! The Q is really fun to use, especially now with the latest firmware. I just need adapters for my other mounts.

I'd say those are pretty good deals, though you can probably find a used 5-15mm for less than $229.

I envy you NA's, here in Sweden the Q market is none.

warehousedeals has a 2 lens kit for $482. I'm not sure if they ship to CAN, but I'd personally choose "Used—Like New" and $120 over "New".

If you're referring to Prodigital, that includes free shipping. That's where I bought my Q. AFAIK you won't get that perk from outside Canada shipped to Canada.

Can't find that anywhere at any of their stores.

I browsed all available stores from the map showing on the main page.
