That's showing 29,000 yen for the Q with the (standard) lens. It's currently 25,800 yen at amazon.jp. Not as cheap as the Ted link, but for Japan that's dirt cheap.

So I would't get too congratulatory. This is a fire sale to clear unsold stock. That tells you there is a large inventory that needs to be cleared, and that tells you the model did not sell as well as anticipated.
