I'm getting a Q!

Just spotted (and contacted the seller) a Q on Gumtree.
Can't wait!
Cheap too!

To be fair there are loads still available, some vendors didn't drop the price to $199 so they still have stock.
Same with the K-01, still plenty around at higher prices.

Congrats on the Q and welcome to the forum. You will find the Q great fun and the perfect companion on the motor bike. The Q starts out cheap, but it gets you in the end. You won't be able to resist the Q lenses. If they don't hook you the adapted lenses will. Then there are cases, viewfinders, red dot scopes, skins, and flashes. The accessory convoy starts easily enough with batteries. Lol. The Q is worth all of this and more. It will be the most fun you have had in ages. The Q is as liberating photographically as your motorcycle is over the car. Enjoy.
thanks

Congratulations, you're going to have a lot of fun with it if my experience and that of many, many others is any guide.
I'm very happy with this (US Amazon, but can be found elsewhere):
