It's said DEPOSIT. That can't be the total cost... that price!!!
PS: Just checked the site again, 20 quids for each of the toy lens sound good....tsk tsk
I realize that it said deposit. However, it is possible to have a 100% deposit and with the toy lenses selling for 20 each that is a possibility. There is no indication of the final price at all on the site.

I bought the original Q a few months ago with the prime lens only. Despite my better judgement, I also picked up the OVF for that lens. The OVF is expensive, but I am having a blast with both. Now, I've finally caved and purchased the wide-to-normal zoom lens for the Q. Again, not cheap but the flexibility of the package has gone up quite a bit. And if I'm honest with myself, I'll admit that I'm going to get the telephoto zoom and the Q-to-K adaptor when they are finally available. But, after that, I think my Q kit will be complete because I have tons of K-mounts lenses to experiment with. Many may fail to understand the appeal of the Q. But it's real nonetheless.

Bumping this thread in the interest of finding an 01 prime lens now.

I've done my searching - it just doesn't seem the lens is available by itself. I even looked into the Q10 kits, but they only seem to be available with one or two zoom lenses.

I did find one Q kit with the 01 lens - about to pull the trigger but I really don't need that extra Q body and accessories. But before I do, I thought I would ask here as a last ditch effort in finding the 01 prime by itself for a reasonable price.

If you are still looking, check out the groupon deal at $199 for the Q + 01, close to the $169 CND for the lens only. Supposedly the 01 will be available in the US in February.
