Went for a walk a bout during lunch. Noone in Funan seems to have it. SLRR says they will order one only is customer wants. Other shops don't even have it at all. Even Click! which carries the Q10 does not carry them. Any idea why? Or is it because have not shipped yet? If that is the case do please close and delete this thread. Thank you in advance.

guess the demand is not big,

q is targeting beginners, few will buy second lens, not mention 06 is a bit for advanced user.

Order from SLRR or SG camera, they would request APDS to ship one unit for you in their next shipment from Pentax Japan. I ordered the Q to K Pentax adapter , it took 2 months.

Order direct from Amazon.co.jp , it's ex stock online, may take 3-5 weeks. I ordered online the Q10+02+06 lens last Feb, Japan local warranty only, so far no issue w lens or Q10.

I am looking for 03 fish eye lens also, no one keep any stock here, not even APDS, the distributor.

I think it is shameful to promote Q10 and not even complete set is brought in by distributor.
What can I say.

Ordered! Can pick up on Tuesday! Woohoo! Apparently there is stock in Sg, just that it appears not much came in and is held en mass in storage. Just need to ask and the shop will get it out of storage for you. XD

SGcameraStore @ $350. They will call for you on the spot and if there is stock will draw one out for you. Apparently someone bought an 06 last week. Wonder if it's anyone we know. :p

My order for Q10+02+06 on 18th Mar with Sgcamerastore still haven't had any news yet. APD is really terrible and can't even give me a date on when it will arrive after nearly 2 months of waiting. My previous custom colour purchase with GizmoBuy/Emjay for the Pentax K-r was a lot faster and I managed to get it within a month. Shame on you, APD! :angry:

Hi, did you order special color Q10 set ? Maybe special color need time to special produced as they are not stocked at Japan, ie these special colors produce on order only.

Maybe you could call SG camera? Or APDS? Ask why take so long , you might get it faster.

Yes, 053 custom colour set. I also ordered custom colout K-r previously, clearly APDS is outclassed by Emjay. I have email a formal email to ADPS after putting up comment in both SgCameraStore and APDS Facebook page. Have already gone past phone call complaint stage. ;(

If payment has been made, slam them with a report from your friendly CASE. ;)

Geengar, what I did for a delivery company previously because they kept delaying my shipment and yet they kept updating the tracking status of my package on their website as "Unsuccessful delivery attempted".

Matter of fact, my mum is a full-time housewife and she's ALWAYS at home. So I got pretty pissed, didn't even bother to call and complain. Here's what I did:

1) Google for ALL their branches email.
2) Enquire and lodge a complain disguised as a "feedback" of their said service.
3) Main local company's address into the "To:" field
4) List down ALL the other branches email under "Cc:" field
5) Send..

;)

I got a reply from their HQ, directed to Singapore's branch, and Cc-ed to the others, to "Look into the matter and maintain standard"

Got a call straight and item delivered @ 1900hrs.

Company in this story is? DPEX.. ;)

Just a hint of what you can do regarding your custom order. Pentax USA, Philippine, Japan, just to list some possible email.

So, list APDS email under the "To:" field and find out all of Pentax/RICOH international branches email and list every single one of them down in the "Cc:" field.

PS: Yes, I actually have a "feedback" in my email across the world to see. ;)

Yes, the kit only comes with 02 lens. I top up for the 06 lens presume to come in another separate box.

Ive already place a sum of deposit but SgCameraStore is willing to give me full refund if I cancel order with them. Now the ball is at APDS court.
Cancel order, quote or attach the email convo between you and SGCameraStore, especially if they explicitly state APDS is the bottleneck, and then do what I did and email to the rest of the world of RICOH and Pentax about it and being a potential customer, "kindly look into the matter"..

It's not about the money, it's about having a service that is no service.

You're also doing your part to help the local Pentax community here, think about it.. ;)
