Pentax Q with 02 Lens, $249.99, Free Shipping at NewEgg
Posted By: dcshooter, 01-23-2013, 05:54 AM

Just as the Shopnbc.com offer has expired, here comes another great offer on the Pentax Q with 02 lens at Newegg.com - $249.99 with free shipping and Google purchase protection!
Also, unlike the Target.com deal, it's tax free in most U.S. states.

Newegg.com - PENTAX Q (15100) Black 12.4 MP 3.0" 460K LCD Digital Camera with 02 Standard Zoom Lens

Thanks for posting!

If I knew that I could get somewhere near $200 for the body on fleabay, I'd buy it to have the 02 to go with my 01.
But it looks like they're going for around $160-$180.
Still, at $160 it would only be $90 for the lens.
decisions.

Also thanks for posting.

I bought my first Q kit from newegg back in December when it was $279. Thinking very hard about buying a second one now. When I have mine setup with the adapter and viewfinder for long reach use, I don't like to have to take it all apart to use it with the native Q lenses.

Kind of funny robtcorl - I am the opposite in that I would keep the body and probably sell the 02 lens.......

I just took a look at the completed sales for the 02 lens on ebay - the average for the last 9 sold was $196.67. Figure an average ebay fee of 10% would be a net ~$177.00.

I really want one and I have no idea why. I don't need one as I'm just building my lens collection though.

Well, I placed my order yesterday, with free standard 3-day shipping, and it came at about 10 AM today!

Apparently NewEgg uses regional warehouses (Mine came from New Jersey) and shipping companies (on the East Coast, an outfit called LaserShip) to keep processing times down.

Probably the best online electronics retailer experience I've yet had. Simply awesome service.

Yeah - I've had nothing but great experiences from newegg. They do have warehouses scattered around the country. I am in Pennsylvania and most of my orders like yours come from their NJ warehouse and are pretty fast.

Yes, NewEgg rocks. They are my second favorite online retailer after Parts Express. They rarely make a mistake, but when they do they will bend over backwards to make it right.

Here's what I would do if I wanted another Q body or the 02 lens...

Buy 2 kits from the Egg, resell each piece (lens or body) for $175 net. You'd get a free lens or body and maybe make a couple bucks

I think alot of people had this idea...there are currently 254 Pentax Q's and Q10's listed on eBay...most seem to be Q's.

Well that doesn't seem nearly as bad as the 02 lens alone - looked this morning and there were only ~6 for sale that were not businesses.

Yeah, there's quite a few bodies looking through ebay. I'd take $130 net for that and $175 for a lens. NewEgg/Pentax are still subsidizing your purchase if you split up kits and keep only what you want

NewEgg has an additional $10 off using promo code NEWCUSTOMER. I might have accidentally ordered one.
