06 Sightings?

The 06 Telephoto is finally up at Amazon. They tend to only put things up for the first time when they are being processed into their warehouses. Perhaps this bodes well for its availability in the US soon?

They are also up on eBay from:

Taiwan in 2 lens kits - 02 + 06 with a Q10 body for $885+shipping.

Canada, same kit, from prodigital2000 for $769 - shipping included.

They usually don't post something until they have it in stock, so it's probably in. Of course, after cancelling my pre-order for the same kit from (the local big B/M camera store) Henry's, I've already put 1,000+ frames on my black Q + 01, so I'm not looking back!

I noticed Amazon had added it a few days ago but the price seemed a little high ($359 vs $299 at b&h and adorama)...I've got email alerts set for b&h once it's officially "in stock" and hopefully it'll reflect the same status on Amazon. I've been watching some of the videos that folks in Japan have posted as it's already on sale there...I'm really hoping it shows up soon!

Amazon often puts stuff up months in advance. I have had a Sony RX1 on preorder since initial press release.

That said, I'm happy to see it in the system, although a bit dismayed at the price. All the Q lenses are a little more from amazon (vs B&H, etc), unfortunately. I'll just buy from one of those photo shops if it stays that way.
