Thread: Good deals on Pentax Q ...

  1. #1

    Default Good deals on Pentax Q ...

    Just found out that Pentax Q prices have dropped to $730 w/ single lens kit, and $970 for dual lens kit. A very good option to shoot the moon or birds if you don't want to spend too much money on super tele lenses

    SLRR and OP all have the same deal for now. I'd love to try the FishEye though ...

    Thanks for the info.

    Looks like its either now or sometime in Feb before I get one.

    It's pretty good deal already, considering some p&s cameras already cost as much if not more

    And the little Q performed pretty well even compared w/ the new Nikon 1:

    I tried the Nikon 1 at the recent Sitex. Found the images very noisy in the exhibition hall even at ISO 800. That would be due to the small premium PnS sensor. In this respect, I think the Pentax Q offers better value money instead.

    Interested in the camera for its size. Anyone knows the roadmap for the lenses?

    There are a few lenses available already, don't really know how Pentax would make more lenses for this system. But it's a fun camera, I think the existing lenses should be sufficient for most people.

    Now I am very tempted to get one. But not sure if single lens or dual lens kit only.

    Get the single lens kit, and a PK to Q mount adapter, you'd be able to use all your PK lenses on the cute little Q

    Use a software like PhotoMe for the last photo taken and you will get your shutter count

    Nope. Compared to the earlier price stated at $970, in fact it has gone up. Price is now cheapest at $996 for the dual lens kit. Not sure if SLRR and the shops in funan is negotiable on it's price?
