Well, the white version costs 4 cents more and can be ordered from Target.com (but possibly not shipped to Romania):

I wish someone would buy it. I have looked at it and resisted 5 or 6 times already. Not sure how long my resolve will last.

DO NOT NEED ANOTHER CAMERA. There I said it. I feel better. For a while anyway.

It's not just another camera! It's a whole new system (and a 5.5 focal length multiplier for your Taks). There, I said it!

Oh, thank you SO much. I really need the encouragement. LBA is bad enough, I really do not need CSBA (Camera System Buying Addition). And my wife is away this week, she won't know if I get it shipped overnight, I can hide it before she gets back........argggggggg

Must resist............

Alright, I'll try to help...

In addition, the Q with a 01 prime really makes for a nice little carry-everywhere-in-coat-pocket camera -- this, when not using it as a focus multiplier for extreme telephoto, of course.

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated...into the Q-continuum....wait, sorry, what, I'm getting things from that franchise mixed up.

But, resistance is futile, you'll not regret a Q.

What is it the saying is "Just Q it"...

You know this is the smallest interchangeable lens digital camera, right? Very easy to hide... cough, cough... not that you'd ever do that. (Plus, some people think it's "cute")

I can't get anymore Qs, but I do wish I'd bought the 01 kit. I have 2 bodies and 1 02 lens.

'I can resist anything except temptation' (Oscar Wilde I think). Seriously, I wondered whether I was making a mistake when I bought my Q, and I have never regretted it--I'm a diehard Q-aholic now.
