Agreed. Not selling body only made sense for the original Q, for the simple reason that no Q-system lenses had been available before anyway, and as such the reasoning goes that every buyer will at least want one lens. Of course, now with the Q10, Q owners wanting to upgrade to the Q10 (practice still has to show whether this is a significant upgrade) may not require an additional lens, as such a body only offer is what's required to satisfy that existing user base. I suppose the body only option will be possible somehow?
This was my thoughts exactly. And I think that it will be available body only a little later on but why its not available upon release is beyond me.

Personally I walked into the shop with the full intention of putting down some deposit cash on one but because of this I have decided to wait.
(This and the fact that I don't have any real dollars for it just hypothetical ones)

Maybe 01 is not very good lens?
It's not that: the 01 is a *very* good lens.

The 01 definitly needs to be available separately for new owners, I don't think there will be many initial Q owners who will upgrade to this but due to the majority of Q cameras being sold in 01 kits it is atually clever marketing to bundle the new model with the 02 zoom as it is makes it more tempting for existing users to buy- some may buy just for the lens and then sell one of the other bodies as it would be chaeper than buying the lens alone.
In my case my wife keeps eyeing up and borrowing my Q so makes extra sense for me- and she loves red!

I may want to get the new q10 but

I want to get the standard prime with it, it would be foolish to not make that an option too. Thats pretty much it in a nutshell, I want he camera the prime and the adapter if I have to buy extra it's not going to be worth it.

Get the K-01 if you want an APS-C sensor to use with the 25 million K-mount lenses without an adapter. I like the Q because it has a 5.5x crop with my FF K-mount lenses and low cost high speed C-mount lenses.
A little monster!
