Interesting that they describe it as "47mm equivalent",
which only relates to the 1/2.3" sensor on the Q and Q10.

Yes, they've had it for a while, but many users don't know. It hasn't really made a big splash because of the price- but in the US it isn't available in any kits.

Wowsies!! At nearly $200 I would pass on this. Shop around and find a used one. There was a season of used original Q kits going on Amazon and eBay for $150. Keep the lens. Sell the body. You'll be way ahead that way.

$200 doesn't sound too bad... that's 147 in real money... I'm just upset that the 08 is still around 400 I want this lens, but not willing to spend that much...

Agree, an 08 is a want but not at the current prices.
