Why I'm selling

I purchased this Q as a package deal. I kept the parts of the package I wanted and am selling the rest (I already have the Q and 01 lens).


My imptessions

The Q is super. The Q is fun. The smallest and most pocketable digital mirrorless camera. Intersesting and inexpensive lenses available. A plethora of adapters from from C, D, F, K mounts, to practically any mount you can imagine. It's got a 5.6x crop factor when mounted with a K (or other 35mm) lens. Examples of the Q's "reach"...

I use mine more than I use my Ricoh GR
Note this is the original Q. The best Q. Why is it the best? Because it's the only Q with a magnesium alloy body. The new Q's have plastic crap bodies. This Q is rock solid.
The 01 lens is the sharpest and fastest Q mount lens available. Small, fast (F 1.9), and light. My most used lens on the Q. I like it. I love it. I want some more of it. Good thing I've got one another one


Condition

PRESTINE. IMMACULATE. MINT. JUST LIKE BRAND SPANKIN' NEW.
No issues. No problems. No signs of wear
Nuff said.


Since I've owned it...

It's lived in it's box other than to take the attached pics.


Shipping

Free shipping to the continental United States. I will ship it internationally, but additional shipping charges will apply.

I'll take it. PM me and we can discuss details.


EDIT - Oops. my bad. I thought this was the silver body. Got a little too trigger happy there.

Silver body? Do you mean white body? The original Q came in white and black.
Thanks for exciting me for two seconds. Two seconds are better than none.

Mr. Excitement...that's me.

I wonder if I was looking at the Q10 then. I'll have to read up on the original Q.

Please do.
To my knowledge the only difference between the Q and Q10 is the original Q is marginally smaller and has a magnesium alloy body. The Q10 bigger is all plastic.
Pentax went with a plastic body to reduce production costs. Newer doesn't always mean better.
