Thanks systemA for the heads up!
Just ordered one, even though I'm still having a ball with my K-01.
I nearly pulled the trigger on Costco's Q deal with the zoom for $299.
This deal I could not pass up!

Congrats wincew, and welcome to the forum!

The title and description show it with the 01 prime lens. The photo shows the 5-15 zoom lens. Discrepancies in ads like this bother me.......

Second picture shows an 01 lens on a body. Description mentions the 01 several places also. Ordered one ... or should I say, a second. Not that I really need another Q, but this kit is less than I paid for an 01 by itself a couple weeks ago. It's a great deal!

Almost pulled the trigger... just realized that it is the prime 01 lens (which I already have); hoping to get the 02 lens....

is the $249 on zoom kit a better deal? or is this one the better one? to me since the original price of 02 is more expensive... which makes it seems like 02 kit is a better deal... but this one is great as well..

Thanks! Couldn't resist at this price, was looking for something a little easier to carry around at time, when the K-5 was a bit much to lug along. Bit concerned about what the landed cost will be in Canada, have never ordered from Groupon before....not sure if I'm going to get hit with further taxes and brokerage. Any Canucks order from Groupon for stuff like this prior?

Cheers.

Edit....I just read the fine print....says this doesn't ship to Canada....but my order did go thru with a Canadian address. Odd...will see what happens.

That is one heck of a deal - I paid $399 for my Q with the 01 lens back in October from Amazon.

Great deal! The 01 Prime is a sweet lens. Well, I guess if you wait long enough it'll be $19.95 at this rate

After watching the price on this drop and drop and drop...and trying to resist...I finally caved and bought one.

I already have an Olympus OMD E-M5 and K-5. oh yeah...and a Canon Powershot S90. And there is that Pentax W90. But I couldn't resist this deal.

I don't really have any strong desire for a Q but that is a great deal so I ordered one anyway.
