Posted By: systemA, 12-30-2012, 04:15 AM

Following the groupon for the K-01 kit for $299 a few days ago, the Pentax Q kit with the 01 prime lens is available at groupon for $199.99:

Pentax Q Camera Kit with Standard Lens Deal of the Day | Groupon

Was going to wait for another K-01 deal but I didn't want to pass this one up!

Did they send an update email or did it just show up?

They sure were prompt in charging my card...

Edit: Just got a shipping confirmation email!

I was about 350th to take advantage of this deal and I received the email confirmation on Friday though the tracking number still shows no record.

Well, this Canadian is out of luck. Just got an email that my order was cancelled , and refunded as they don't ship to Canada. Too bad. If anyone who got this deal is having second thoughts.....and is interested in sending it to a long time member in the Great White North, please PM me.

Edit: Gaahh!!! They didn't refund my credit card....they gave me a stupid account credit for $199!! Now I'm concered......

I was wondering how the orders with Canadian shipping addresses would fare, apparently not too well. I thought the order would be cancelled, hence I had mine shipped to TSB shipping service in Point Roberts, WA. Hopefully, insisting on a refund might make Groupon relent...

I sent a follow up email requesting a credit card refund earlier this afternoon and they replied a couple hours later that the full refund was processed. I'm alright with that.....nothing ventured, nothing gained. I do plan on still buying one of these someday. I played with one at a Henry's location shortly after it was released, and it's a nice bit of kit. My first foray into Pentax, was my first digital camera, the Optio S. I loved the looks on peoples faces, when I would pop open the Altoids tin, and take out that camera. I still have it.

Funny, it was the same for me except it was my friends camera that I would borrow. I ended up buying an optio A series because I like his so much and then a DSLR and a lens and another lens and ........ so on.
