Pre-order: new Pentax Q7 mirrorless camera

The Pentax Q system "survived" the Ricoh merger and even "grew" to a 1/1.7" sensor. Today Pentax announced the new Q7 camera and it is available for pre-order for $500 with the 5-15mm lens and $700 in a two lens kit at Adorama and B&H Photo. The body only goes for $478, just $22 less than the kits with the 5-15mm standard zoom. All kinds of different color combinations are available.

Pentax K-01 black w/40mm XS pancake for $360

The black Pentax K-01 with the 40mm XS pancake lens is now available for $360 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon and B&H Photo. If they sell out, you can get it for $370 at Adorama.

If you prefer the white body color, you can get the K-01 with 40mm XS pancake for $380 at B&H Photo.

The price is not as good as the $317 price of the yellow of a few weeks ago, but most of us don't have time machines. Speaking of the yellow ones, a lot of the $317 orders have been shipped by now.

If you don't want the 40mm XS lens and don't want to sell/trade it either, you can get the black K-01 body only for $300 at Amazon by Amazon and the black or yellow or white for $300 at B&H Photo.

On the other hand if you are a fan of zoom lenses, the K-01 two zoom lens kits (18-55 and 50-200) start at $470+ (depending on body color) at B&H Photo and Amazon.

Deal Ended: yellow Pentax K-01 w/40mm for $315 (DEAL ENDED)

We have a Deal Ended alert! After many days, the yellow Pentax K-01 with the 40mm XS pancake lens for $315 ended at Amazon.

As of a late Friday re-check the price returned to normal levels at $400... with the price jumping to $900 (!). Not sure if this suggests a price-error now or the previous price was an error that they didn't notice before or they jumped the price high to stop people from buying it. As far as I can tell, none of the previous $315 orders have shipped. If you purchased one of the $315 kits and it has shipped, please let us know in the comments or using the online contact form!

Still good: Yellow Pentax K-01 w/40mm XS for $317

The yellow Pentax K-01 with the 40mm XS pancake lens continues to be offered for $317 at Amazon by Amazon itself. Given that the price continues for the fourth day in a row, the chances of this being a price-error are significantly reduced. Don't forge to also get "Yellow" by Coldplay, a good match for the camera ;-)
