damn, can't believe I missed this deal! think I should hold off buying it at $250, in hopes of another deal?
I'm debating between getting this, and some lumix 4/3rds camera.. I have a DSLR, but I also want a small walkaround camera that performs better than a mid-range P&S.. I'm sure the lumix ($400-something) would be better-quality, but I like the almost toy-like aesthetic of this camera. plus, I'd love to use the k-mount feature.

Any of the advanced cameras can be shot in full auto, and probably should be unless you are comfortable making adjustments to ISO, shutter speed and aperture. The nice thing about an advanced camera is that those options are always available down the road, should you be interested in doing so.

Looks like a good value for a "prosumer" model camera. Kind of reminds me of the top-end Kodak cameras from a couple years back, but with interchangeable lenses and better video capability.

|bruteshot||you can get a Nikon D70/D50 for about this price or slightly more with the outstanding 18-70 kit lens. If you're in the market for a nice camera and don't mind a bigger size, definitely go with a used DSLR.|

I can't speak for this camera, but if i was shooting pictures of a baby, and was set on the "q" system I'd get the package with the prime as the telephoto won't be much use until he/she starts running around.
The kit with the fast prime goes for about $90 more amazon:
That said if I was spending $300 I'd be looking hard at some of the discount M43 cameras or that funky pentax mirrorless with the same sensor as the D7000 if it goes on sale for $300 again.

|dpham00||I want to take pics of my baby without flash in low light. I currently have a sx100 and zs7. Neither of these do this well, very grainy. Would this be a substantial improvement over my current cameras? Also, for now i would shoot in full auto... Would that be a problem?|

We aren't photographers. We have a Nikon D40, that we bought a few years ago and we want something smaller and easier to carry when we are away from home, as a second camera.
Would I be better off to buy this or a quality point and shoot. I saw good reviews on the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS. Which would likely be better for my basic needs?
Im looking to buy soon for my wifes birthday.
Mainly, I want a small camera that is fairly easy to use and produes quality photos for a good price or free. Thats easy enough, right?
I might also add that we will mainly take family photos.

|zapatista||Adapting old Pentax K mount/Canon FD/Nikon F/Konica AR/Minolta MC-MC lenses to the Q is half the fun. It's got decent (in body) stabilization and focus peaking! Yes, I know it's not going to have the same 100% crop IQ/shallow depth of field of a m43 and larger sensored mirrorless/DSLR cameras, but the Pentax Q has very nice IQ for WHAT IT IS. Comparable to the LX5-7 or S100.|

|tennisplayer888||Wait so with this cam, can you use an adapter and put other lens onto it?|
