$499 - New Pentax Q
Posted By: Adam, 04-25-2012, 06:04 PM

So, it looks like Adorama and B&H have just slashed the price of the Pentax Q by $250!

You can get one for just $499. See below:

Agreed. At $399 (which is probably close to wholesale pricing), the Q would actually be worth it.

I'm getting one once the local (non-US) prices hit this level.

this is where the price makes sense. a year out the initial R&D has likely been covered, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a Q2 drop in the fall (if they can find the capacity to make it with all the other rumoured cameras)

I will wait for the Q 2 but if it's not much of an upgrade and the current Q price drops I will get the Q 1 instead.
