Pentax Q10 Compact System Camera with 3-Inch LCD zoom lens kit 12.4MP (RED)

Sold by Beach Camera.

What are the different models of the Q please? It sounds like one eventually did get a bigger sensor? I see Q, Q7 and Q10(?) options?

Thanks

There were 5 available until mine arrived this morning. I works great. I have an adapter coming so I can try this with my vintage Minolta Rokkor MC 50mm f1.4 which is a really nice lens. If I understand the conversion factor correctly this should give me the equivalent of a 275mm f1.4. Regardless, I used my sisters Q10 over the weekend and it is capable of some really nice photos. I can tell already that there will be a bit of a learning curve to finding out how to get the best results but that is the case with any new equipment.

Thanks for the heads up Crewl1, I've looked around a bit but I'm sure I'll be hanging out there much more now that the camera arrived.

By the way for those of you picking up new Q's, the add on Pentax warranty does apply.
Pentax 2 Year Extended Warranty for all current Pentax DSLR, Compact and Q Cameras. (Total Warranty 3 years - 1 Year Standard + 2 Years Additional)

The shipping was strange. I ordered mine last Monday and it didn't ship until Friday and was here on Monday which happened to be the earliest of the date range promise.

So if I were you I would expect it to get to you on the day promised by Amazon.
