Come to the small (dark) side Adam.
If the Q had power zoom I'd be sold, but it doesn't

This is an "authorized" dealer for Pentax? Is there any concern that the warranty (whether original or extended) would be honored?

Looks like a decent little camera to have around. Thinking about getting one. Has anyone tried K adapter with other lenses?

There are several threads in the Q section devoted to that subject. The brief answer is that the Q has more adaters available for it than any other camera I can find. The K adapters come in three main varieties - simple with no aperture control, aperture control, and Pentax OEM with aperture control & built in leaf shutter. They range in price from $15 to $249. I have used the basic one with a variety of my older lenses that have aperture control on the lens and the Q at 5.5 crop factor makes a K300/4 lens into a Super Telephoto at 1650mm. If you are thinking of one there is no better deal in the US than the ShopNBC deal right now.

Got my Q from this place. Was shipped out about four biz days after I ordered. They included the Extended Warranty, plus that SD card. It all looks fine to me. Am pleased with my purchase and particularly the price.

Congratulations! It took them 5 to get mine in the mail to me. Shipping was $13 but still the Warranty and the price make this a great purchase IMHO. C

That sounds like a lot of fun and for the deal seems like a great time to buy.... So tempting. I just bought the K-01 and am looking at getting another lense for it. With the Q and the adapter I would have alot of fun experimenting. I hope this price sticks around. Right now I am not sure I could buy it. Maybe next month though. Could the price get lower?

Any room for 2 more in the small (dark) side?

I just took the dive. After seeing the price compared to other sites (some at $399.99 for the same kit) I just had to buy now. The other threads aboslutely made my mind up for me. Its so small, and easier to carry around town for fun than the K-5 and better than my iphone. I bought this as a gift for my wife for Christmas. Shes been wanting an advanced camera, so I figured why not start with this. But, I know I will end up hoarding for myself and have to force myself to share I cant wait for her to open up this gift on Christmas day so that I can finally get to play with it. haha... BTW, the white kit is sold out, I was really looking forward to buygin that one, the kit sold out overnight, I saw it available last night but wanted to think about it so of course when I made my mind up, it was sold out but, at least I still got a really good deal on it. Especially using the ValuePay option at $41 a month. Cant beat it!

Congratulations. I don't think that the Q will be around long enough in the US to go lower than its current price. Sorry about the white selling out, I know how you feel about loosing an opportunity by taking time to think about it. You could always look at the skins that they make for the Q to change up its appearance from the basic black.

I wish that ShopNBC would offer the Q with the 01 Prime at that price, so I could get that lens *and* have a spare body. I'll keep hoping. Christmas is still over a week away.

The prime kit is discontinued. Not sure where Pentax is going with this, but the zoom is technically worth more!

It might be worth more, but having both lenses, I prefer the 01 Prime.

He did say "technically"

I agree, the 01 Prime is a gem.

Ordered the Q off of HSN, although would like both the 01 prime and the 02 lenses but at the price HSN is selling it for I cannot complain even if Pentax never officially offers the prime separately.

Is the SD card that ships from HSN good enough to check out the Q with? I realize it is too slow for video but hoping that it will be okay for initially playing with the camera then buying a faster card off newegg or ? next month.

Edit: shopnbc, not hsn

If you mean ShopNBC then the card that comes in the box did not work in my Q. I use SanDisk Extreme IIIs and they work like a charm.
