Original Q with 01 lens, Wasabi battery kit, Q to PK lens adapter

I've received the MX-1 the other day and sold the 03 lens, so now it's time to split the package.

See description for pricing, and PM me for a shipping quote. PayPal accepted.

1. Q + 01 lens $185 + shipping. I will split the lens from the body, but keep in mind you're getting the Q for super cheap. I purchased this kit from Groupon when the Q firesale was going on last spring. It's the original version with the 8.5mm f/1.9 prime lens aka 01.

It works perfectly without issue. It's in pristine condition without any wear to speak of. PhotoMe gives a ridiculously low shutter count, but my last picture with it is IMGP0654 so 654 clicks sounds about right.

Comes with everything as new, only the battery and charger were ever opened.















2. SOLD Next up is the 03 fisheye, which is an f/5.6 3.2mm manual focus lens. Bought from a forum member here over the summer. Works great, in perfect shape. Box flap does have a small tear in it. Includes both caps, box, paperwork.SOLD







3. $15 + shipping. Fotodiox PK to Q adapter with aperture control. Really didn't like this adapter much, almost bought the genuine Pentax one. It works. Didn't lock a couple of my lenses, however. In great shape in box.




4. $15 + shipping. Wasabi battery kit with charger (OEM charger uses a cord, this one plugs right into the wall). Comes with two batteries, wall adapter, US plug, European continent plug, and car charger cord.

FWIW, I have never seen my wife have so much fun with a camera. She's always had something, but to her whatever it was was a dumb tool. She actually giggles when people see her changing lenses and their eyes goggle. Giggles! She's (well, I shouldn't say, but not a teenager).

Q is fun!

It truly is fun. I just don't grab it as often as I should. Carrying one battery type and one lens system is what I prefer at the moment. Unless I'm messing around in the yard, it makes shooting easier.

It's really a minisQule camera!

Do you consider sell the 03 lens and the extra battery?

I have sent a shipping quote for the whole kit and I'm waiting to hear back. There is an offer for the body + 01 + PK adapter, so I will sell the 03 and battery kit separately if the first deal falls through

Pity, I just bought the Q, but now I'd like to have the 03 lens also, and your kit is perfect. )
I thought you sold it already.

Second camera?

I was thinking of getting a q as a back up/ spare/ or small easy to use second camera for the family as they dont seem to be comfertable with my k-50. But. It sounds like you didnt use it much as a back up.

As i am starting out would this be a good idea for me to use as a back up?

I would appreciate your opinion.

Also if i put a 55-300wr lense on the q with the adapter would it give me closer shots due tothe croping factor of the small sensor i keep hering about or do i have this hole sensor croping thing wasy wrong.

yes it would get you closer than the regular pentax...the crop factor is about 1.5 on apsc and the q is about 5.6 so figure about 4 x more range than normal....a 300mm lens on the q would get you to about 1200mm if you subtract out the 2 crops factors...go to the q section of the forum and you can see the difference
