Amazon.com: Pentax Q 12.4 MP CMOS Sensor Kit with 8.5mm 1.9 AL [IF] Prime Lens(Black): Camera & Photo


What's up with the 3x Optical Zoom ? The Q has a 5-15mm 3x zoom.

Looks like a great deal- that zoom thing must be a typo.

Speaking of typos, I'm seeing an after rebate price of $349 from Adorama - but it seems to be an error, the rebate form linked to is an Olympus one .

My buying hand would have moved so fast if that was the zoom + prime price!

Still want this camera but between jobs

$411.07 from Amazon now, look at the recent price history - seems like their algorithm is aggressively trying to clear them out, with a drop every few days.

Pure speculation of course, but if Amazon has placed the product in a cost-reduction algorithm, one would suppose that they've programmed a base price and a date at which that price will be reached. To me that smells of them knowing of a new model announcement.

Yes it does. ~$11 a day less, so by next weekend will we be around $325?
