Price on Pentax Q7 on Amazon dropping

I have to admit that I am very enthusiastic about the Q7 and would love to buy for myself when the price is right. The price of $499 with a lens is a bit steep for me right now but that doesn't stop me from my online window shopping!

I noticed that the price on Amazon for a Q7 with the 02 Zoom lens dropped from $499 to $456.24. That's cheaper than the body-only price.

Amazon.com: Pentax Q7 12.4MP Compact System Camera with 02 Standard Zoom 5-15mm f2.8-4.5 Lens (Silver): Camera & Photo

Are pre-release orders low and is this an effort to boost them? Personally, I think if this kit should be priced at $350 on release and drop to $300 in December.

I might be interested in upgrading my much loved Q for a Q7 at the $300 price range. Especially since I'm already good on lenses for that system.

Having no Q's at all, I am definitely intrigued about getting one of the 1/1.7" sensor models if the price was right. So, under $400 with a lens would be ideal.

Just beware: one silver image shows the 01 prime but all other images are the 02 zoom, which is how the package is marked!

I bought my Q with an 01 lens with the intention of getting a Q7 once the price dropped. I'm enjoying my Q, and getting surprising results with it. A bit more sensor and full movie support would be worth getting.

I'm weak. I just ordered a Q7 from Amazon.

I'll pair the 02 lens from the kit with my old Q and sell it here on the Marketplace.

Congrats!! I'm still tempted by the Sony RX100 so I may go that route instead but I'm very intrigued to hear real-world hands-on reviews of the Q7. Please report back when you get one and try it out!

I actually picked up a Canon EOS-M back when they had the $299 deal. B&H Photo didn't have enough inventory of the EOS-M + 22mm prime kit. So they sent me the kit with EOS-M, lens and flash at no additional expense.

My original intention was to play with both and then choose one to sell. But I find now that I like both for different reasons so I plan on keeping both.

Absolutely! Once the Q7 arrives I'll need to go stop visiting websites that advertise camera deals.

Ok...I confess I'll still visit. But I will exercise amazing self-control. Really. I really will.

I see that the two lens kits dropped from $699.95 to $625.27!

Amazon.com: Pentax Q7 12.4MP Compact System Camera with 02 Standard Zoom 5-15mm f2.8-4.5 and 06 Telephoto Zoom 15-45mm f2.8 Lenses (Black): Camera & Photo

Keep going, Amazon! The right price is right around the corner!

It's $699 again. Maybe as we get closer to Christmas we'll see some great deals.
