Pentax Q or for the same price the Sony A77

How about around $1350 for a camera with the same 1/2.3" 12MP BSI CMOS sensor (made by Sony) as the Canon SX230, a f/1.9 47 mm "prime lens" ($799 as kit with the Pentax Q) a f/2.8 to f/4.5 3x zoom lens ($299) and a non zooming optical viewfinder ($249).
We have a winning combination for the loony of the year award.

That is more than for a Sony A77 with a 3 x zoom lens and way more than for a Sony A65 with a 3 x zoom lens!

And talking about the image quality this here might help shed some light in understanding why this system can not produce a $800 good image but rather something in the $200 - $300 class.
