Q shoulder bag (85234)

Has anyone own what Pentax is calling the Pentax Q Vintage Leatherette Shoulder Bag (#85234)?

I ordered one along with a preorder for the 06 lens, takes 7-14 days to ship (the bag, the lens who knows). I've been searching everywhere for a picture of the inside of it, I thought I saw one someplace. Was looking for something small that would hold the whole kit (it also killed the last of my store credit at B&H, unless the Q drops a 4th time in 30days) and that seemed like a good way to make a travel bag. But now that I can't find anything on it to follow up, I'm starting to second guess if this will be big enough for the Q, 01, 02, 06 and hopefully the charger and 3 batteries


Any comments or Pictures (other than the one on B&H's site) are welcome

Digging around again on Pentax Japan site instead of Pentax USA I found this,www.pentax.jp/japan/news/2012/20121011.html


That might be case I saw a picture of the interior, and not the 85234 But that looks like a women's purse...

Yes, I saw that bag, seems to hold everything nicely. Seems like it's a free gift if you purchase the Q10...I couldn't find a way to actually purchase it. Some lucky folks in Japan have been able to sample it:

Not sure how the shape of the 85234 is configured to hold everything... it'll be interesting to see.

a bit bulkier than i'd like, I like the streamlined look of the Japanese Q10 bag

Something about the Q fueled the taste for a vintage look, at first the 85234 seemed to fit the bill. The more I look at that one picture the less sure I am that it will hold much at all. I like the look of some of the classic clam shell cases also, but those would seem to be in the way all the time.

Thanks for the links and info.

I actually ordered this bag a few days ago from B&H. It has shipped and should arrive on the 20th. I will report back when I get it and may post pics as well.

I just received the bag. I was a little surprised, not sure if i'm keeping it or not. It's tiny, just like the Q! It will only hold the Q and a large zoom lens attached. it's roughly 4" x 4" x 3". the pictures don't really mention the sense of scale, but it is neat little bag to carry just the camera, that's it. But I was surprised when I opened the package...it's just a tiny little bag/carrier to carry just the camera.

Thanks Pico, I guess my second thought fears have just been realized. I think might wait and let the send it, there still might be a use for it. Just not the one I hoped for, but for simplier trips like got for a hike (loosly speaking) it might work out. Wouldn't be the first time I had more than one bag option for a kit, I think I have 3 for the K5 kit.

It seems vintage and allows me to carry the camera naked which keeps the camera as small as possible. My problem is I usually have the Q in a leather half-case which aids in the grip with a bit of protection and makes it slightly taller...which would prevent it from working with this bag/pouch. But I do like the idea of carrying the camera naked...aids in changing the battery and SD cards. The inner "step" where the lens rests is soft and padded. Hmm...still have to think if this is a keeper or not...

Thanks for posting the shots. Is that inner step removable? I thinking maybe it could be replaced with a block of foam that's slit too hold a few batteries, though it might be smaller than a battery.

Edit: Check out what this guy is using (just past half way down the page), reminds me of that 'hey buddy, you wanna buy a watch?'
