I wish Pentax would come out with a Q+06 kit for under $200!
That would be nice, of course even just an 06 under $200 would be nice.

Could someone please help me buy this from Australia, I could use a freight forwarder, but Newegg will only take payment from an US issued credit card or US Paypal account, it seems to me they are being difficult about it.

Yeah, this is the only thing I don't like about neweggs. I've bought from b&h, amazon, KEH and some other online shops w/o any problem. But just can't buy from neweggs because of their payment restriction Now I've stopped checking on their website no matter how good the deal is...

I had to do that with some microphones a British buddy of mine wanted. The process was ridiculous haha. I also got jealous when I saw what he had ordered... Custom made stuff.

Really? I'm in Aus and I used shipito. Payment went through to NewEgg via Paypal this morning. Got the confirmation that it's being packaged at the moment.
Make sure your paypal address matches the address your fright forwarder uses.

And yes, I did accidentally subconsciously join the Q club...

Well, I had fun shooting with it today . . . .

I am quite surprised at its image quality. In fact, I am astounded by it, really. These were taken with 02 zoom lens, which some people thought that it wasn't sharp enough - a total nonsense in my opinion. The lens is certainly more than good enough for its intended use.

My dad took one look at the camera and these pics, and he says, "I want that camera." So sadly I am now without a Q. But that is ok - I just bought another one on ebay, this time with the 01 prime for $229.

The thing about Q is that it makes no sense to buy this unless you intend to buy more than one lens, really. I am going for the Toy wide, and fisheye (sigh).

I have the same finder. It was originally meant for Yashica Electro GSN. Neither the Tele rectangle nor Wide rectangle frame the scene correctly, unfortunately. Its a bit approximate.
