Had it delivered this morning . . . .

It got here very fast, especially for free shipping.

mine got here this morning as well. Had to do firmware updates after the battery was charged as it still had the original 1.00 firmware on there. Says manufacture date of 01/17/2012 so the camera has been sitting around for a while. No big deal.

We'll see how it works on a few trade shows coming up. Need to find a good case for it with the zoom lens though

Don't forget to update the firmware on your lens as well. Yes, the 01 & 02 lenses for the Q have their own firmware too.

I forgot all about 1.00 firmware.. is there any reason at all to stick with it over updating (I know about the extra features - let's say I didn't want them for the time being) ?

Arrgh, mine hit town ~2PM, so it will likely be delivered tomorrow as scheduled. Missed the truck by an hour or two I expect.

The camera operates smoother and starts up much faster. There's pretty much no reason to stay on 1.0...

Just picked mine up from UPS. Looking forward to playing with it. I was rally surprised when they handed me two NewEgg boxes and figured that maybe I had been sent two by mistake. Then I realize that one of the 02 kits was supposed to be an 01 kit ordered through a vendor on Amazon. That vendor jumped on this deal as well and just purchased the 02 kit from NewEgg and had it shipped to me directly. We will have to see how this all plays out.

Anyway, looking forward to playing with the Q and 02 for now as soon as the battery charges.

... Can anybody help me with a good story for why a second Q has shown up at the house in a four week period of time? I'm sure I'll be questioned on this by the wife.
I was stunned when my wife told me to buy her one, and one for myself. I tried to get her a yellow-brick K-01 but she wanted 'smaller' - clearly the Q qualifies! So you may need to put a ribbon on it for Valentine's Day, then grab another one - with three around the house she'll never notice that it's one too many... maybe.
