Check the Pentax Compact Forum, Ron just posted info that KEH had a couple Q kits with prime lens for around $260 and you could always use the BB card for an 06 lens or something.

What's a BB card?

You really can't think of the Q as a K-01 or something, they are very different.  Even vs other enthusiast point and shoots it is different.  Hard to explain

I just bought a black Q with 01 prime at KEH, and I'm blaming you.

Dan, the Q with the #01 prime is a very good combination.  Make sure that you get the latest firmware - it adds IS to manual focus lenses and also provides focus peaking.  It cannot be a K-01 of course but it is surprisingly good and takes reasonable images.  My "fun" lens is a 38mm f1.9 prime in D mount.  It does not vignette and is actually about 212 mm f1.9 on the Q.  I get plenty of self-chuckles about just how powerful a combination this is in such a little package.
