Shiner welcome to the Q. You will have so much FUN! The Q is a jewel. Don't forget the body and lens firmware updates. They are not subtle. Extra batteries are a +.

Post some shots when you get a chance and consider entering contest #67 in the compact camera forum. Enter any subject you want and any brand camera is allowed.
thanks

I was prepared to pay more, but I ended up being the only bidder!

That's an excellent price to pay for that kit. I'm looking forward to the pictures that you'll take with it.

I haven't done much with it yet, just updated it and the lens (the lens has an update! )
We had a horrendous line of storms called a "Derecho" (never heard of it) plow through here while I was at work, and the only shot I got was when it passed. But I used my new Q on HDR mode. These were Mammatus clouds, I believe- also the 1st I have ever seen here in Georgia- crazy...

Great sky/sunset picture. Looks like you are off to a good start. Isn't the 01 lens delightful? I've been really impressed with it.

Just picked up a Q + 01 locally here in Vancouver for 249$. Couldn't let it pass at that price especially since I've had my eyes on it for about 6 months.

It's SOOOO sturdy in your hands. Wow. Love the feel of it and can't wait to make some pictures with it.
