Best deals?

So... I'm sure that the Q has been discontinued... Time for me to complete my collection.

Can anyone recommend the best/cheapest place for me to pick up an S1 body & 06 lens? Country of origin is irrelevant as I'll have to get it to Dubai anyway...

I already have the Q, 01, 02, 03, 08 and some accessories... The S10 body will give me wider wide angles (my main use) and be useful for video, as it has autofocus...

Found a Q7 w/02, 06 lenses on Ebay. It had to come from Japan. Not sure Q is discontinued.
Good luck.

Check out the Point & Shoot contest in the Compact Camera forum. Enter #115. The Q is invited and all camera brands are allowed.

The Q is no longer being marketed outside of Japan, but not officially discontinued.

Amazon US has most of the lenses for cheap, not sure about the body though.

I got my Q-S1 from Amazon Japan a few months ago. Used a mail forwarding company, it still worked out fairly economical.

The Q-s1 + 02 & 06 lenses bundle is still a decent price. You could always offload the extra 02 lens.
