There is also firmware update for the 01 and 02 lenses for the Q if you have those. I think they are on the same page as the firmware update and follow basically same steps, need to have lens on camera when do update for it.

waterproof bag

Ive used Voyageur (now Harmony) bags in BWCA, Quetico and canoeing around Isle Royale Park. Also have a small otterbox that I tend to rely on most. Harmony does make a small 30l barrel system that may work for you too. If you are going on a canoe trip ;may want to consider getting a waterproof camera like a pentax wp, or a full waterproof housing for the camera you are taking along, which can get pricey. The rain can be more invasive than the chances of capsizing and submerging things. After a few days of rain, it becomes hard to keep anything dry, if you want to use it all during the trip.. Ortlieb makes good gear too but I haven't used their camera bag myself. Still using the Voyageur quik draw bag i've had for quite awhile.

I'd be most tempted to buy a k30 if it was bundled with the 40mm, like the k01 was for awhile. that would be a lense camera body combo that would be of interest to me.

I expect to get the 01 lens. Usually the description in "the deal" section has the basic unadorned info on what is being offered. But that doesn't mean that there might not be some of the zoom lens kits left around at groupon that get mixed in. I had read somewhere though that somehow groupon had wound up with most if not all of the remaining stock of the 01 lens q kits from Pentax NA. Not sure where I read this but would seem to be the case, or it was until they just sold them. Wonder if they have another batch or if this was the lot..

Now what I would like to know, is if there will be any similar markdowns of the 06 lens or the pentax adapter.. That may take awhile ot occur.

I almost forgot about the warranty, see you're already evening things up. Most of my posts are more like .02 cents. Enjoy your Q! Wonder how long before they get around to shipping them.

Thanks, The compactness is big reason, but the tele uses are also of interest. I'm also interested in seeing how the focus peaking will work with macro uses. Looks like fun!
