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 ;p

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

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.

Had check with some shop at funan, price went down but cash payment.
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?
