    Good price, but can't say it's the best in the whole world:

    Pentax Q + 8.5mm | Pentax Digital SLR Cameras | Ted's Camera Stores - Ted's Cameras

    The above one is about $255sgd only! And you can buy a Q w the standard lens for less than 300sgd easily in Japan.

    Wah! Ted is real cheap.
    Japan could not be so cheap, Pentax Japan online is selling Q more expensive than Q10 , if you know this cheap Japan shop contact , let me know, my colleague could buy the lens. I thought Japan is all priced more expensive.

    Philip, Congrats!
    End of the torture of waiting
    Nice price too in our local context.


    With firmware v1.10, I personally think that Q classic is a classic over Q10.
    Those pondering over a purchase should get one and get it over with and enjoy using the camera.


    BTW, do you have the price for K01?
    I'm considering it to tide me over till the big one comes.

    I'm sure I've seen some online shops selling for around $300USD, a quick search on amazon.jp would give you this:
    Amazon.co.jp: PENTAX デジタル一眼 Q レンズキット ブラック PENTAXQLKBK: 家電・カメラ

    It's about $400SGD. I'm sure there are places selling for cheaper.

    Just for your info, Q was the best selling EVIL camera last week in Japan among all EVIL cameras, and out-sold quite some dSLR cameras too. Probably Pentax is trying to clear the stock for the arrival of Q10.

    Most likely as you pointed out , online retailer trying to clear stock now only, weeks earlier the price was higher US$399 B&H and Amazon, Japan Pentax online still did not drop Q price. Better to buy from retailer sometimes.

    Timing is probably everything, TK Foto guy said I am the first customer for Q for them, not sure how true, but he said they only bring in one black one white to stock in their store. Before that, I went 4th floor, it was $760, then walking down to TK Foto , did not hope to see Q but wanted to check out GXR A16 , there it was in a small corner display glass table Q for $487 w 8GB SD card!

    GXR plus A16 kit at $880 is very good price. I checked around 2 months ago at the funan shops, the A16 module alone is between $850-$880.

    3rd party adapters are passe
    Just spend the money once and get the original Pentax one.

    It supports 1/250 flash sync for external flash and 1/1000 for the internal one.
    Literally day and night in terms of usability for macro and birds/animals.
