Pentax Q Complete Kit unboxing

I normally don't film an unboxing, but so few people have seen the Q7 Complete Kit that I decided to share this ungainly attempt at documentary footage. This package was initially available only in Japan, but is now available through the U.S. Pentax webstore. A few things that I didn't mention in the video: The 01 and 02 lenses are black versions; the 01 hood is metal, an exact replica of the DA 40mm ltd. hood only smaller; the 02 (tulip) and 06 (round) hoods are plastic. I misspoke in the video when I said all the lenses had hoods. Only 01, 02, and 06 have hoods.


The new 08 lens, of course, now makes this the Q7 "Incomplete Kit" since the 08 is not present in this collection. I guess I'll have to fix that.

Nice - the 02 hood is different for the Q7 from the Q, did they include that hood here? It should be a petal style for the Q7.

Thanks for the video!
I fought down the urge to buy the kit last night (I have 2 original Q's) not sure I can hold out much longer.

I understand camera addiction, robtcorl. I always regretted never getting the Auto 110 set. But I'm not trying to sell the Q7; I just wanted to share the information.

looks great, thanks for making and sharing the video. Makes me want to buy a Q7-- didn't really appreciate just how small the lenses are!

There's no cure for GAS (except destitution)

I'd be hoping for a non-leather bag as leather goes moldy very quickly in our tropical wet seasons.

Yes, the 02 hood in the Q7 Complete Kit is the new petal shape to accommodate the larger sensor. Now if I can only find the 08 hood in the USA I will have the truly complete Q7 kit because I just bought the new 08 zoom.

Do you have the sense that the USA is the dumping ground for Japan overstocked items? This complete Q7 kit did not become available here until it wasn't any longer the complete Q7 kit.

God would know. This entire Q7 kit was officially sold out in Japan a month after it was announced. Now, half a year later, it mysteriously appears in the RIAC webshop again, at a lower price than the original.

I think Pentax probably favors the Japanese home market first out of cultural courtesy, but not that it later offers things abroad as a dumping ground. I think that is too harsh a term for opening up sales abroad simply because they conclude the home market has peaked.
