Promised wide angle lense

Any news on when the wide angle lens is due to be released? I have the zoom and the prime, but the wide would be a great addition for interior architecture shots. At the moment the zoom gets allot of use, but the wide angle could take over as my main lens...

Haven't heard anything! The cap lens will be coming out in the summer, so I'd presume that whatever's next won't come out until late q3.

Isn't a pinhole lens different from a body cap lens? For example, isn't there another compact camera (Olympus?) that has a body cap lens that isn't a pinhole?

Not just a hole. I think they will even put a little piece of glass over the hole to keep the dust out!

Well, they better get the 01 prime back in stores at least. Not having these lens available right when the Q10 comes out seems pretty stupid to me.

I found a interesting pin hole lens on the bay.

I am also waiting for the Wide angle lens.
In the meantime, I am thinking to DIY a pin hole lens with a Q mount cap.

If it was quality glass I'd be interested in a wide angle for the Q mount.
