Yeah, that's close. I think that's about 39 or 40mm like. I think if I see a good sale on the Q7, I might jump. But I don't think the Q7 is sold with the 01 prime, right?
01 on a Q7 (or Q-S1) is actually very close to what was/is considered the "perfect normal" with the Pentax FA 43mm. But yes, the 01 is hard to find in USA. Adorama and Amazon have it at the moment.

The 08 is so good that it's a more than adequate substitute for a wide prime (20 or 24 eq., say), which would not be as expensive as the 08, but probably not by much. Given the 08, I don't think a wide prime will be forthcoming.

Exactly. A wide prime is also on my list.
And scale this design up to K-mount with magnesium body and environmental sealings, maybe add a second dial...
And a pancake la DA40

I still fear, I'd rather go LX8 when it comes (very near now).

O wow looked at some rumors, but they upgraded heavily looks like it. The 1 inch sensor is the new way to go.

Hehe yep, that sensor is gonna blow away anything Pentax.
A Ricoh GR would be very nice but I still would like some versatility so, I guess a Ricoh GX (from the previous GX series: a GR but with EVF and zoom) of some sort would be a good deal to me.
