Good pick. It's even making me think about pulling the trigger...

Excellent find. I wonder what the build dates will be on those cameras?

For the K01, the amazon deal with 40mm pancake is a better deal at 334 shipped to Aus.

I bought one in the last sale. How can I check the build date?

Slightly more complicated than just looking at the Exif data for build date. There is an article and link to a program (simple) here:

Thanks for that.

Camera PENTAX Q
Manufacture Date 2011:10:15
Shutter Count 738

So it was over a year old when bought and I certainly haven't taken anywhere near that many pics.

It may well be the case that they had 2 batches of Q's made, all in the Oct to May 2011-2012 timeframe.

That was quick. When I first connected to the website the camera was still in stock.

Don't! Don't think any more, I mean. At that price, it's a bargain. I bought a Q secondhand, with 01 and 02, at a much higher price, and I've never regretted it for a moment.

Edit: too late, it seems, now. Pity, but a lesson in the old maxim about hesitating...

Hey Ash, nice to see another Q owner in Qld.

I actually stumbled into Teds just before Christmas for a browse (I never usually bother with Teds because of their pricing) and saw two on a manager's special for $199. When I asked the manager about them, he looked like he was ready to offer a free set of steak knives if I walked out the store with one.
