Looks like a 3x optical lens (5mm-15mm, F2.8-F4.5)

Too bad it takes Q-mount instead of K-mount ... lots of great old lenses to be had with the K.

the pentax q sensor size is 1/2.3". it's in no man's land. if you buy an interchangeable lens camera (ILC) you're buying into a system of lenses. high quality glass would be limited by the maximum resolution of the sensor.
over the 2012 holidays retailers were selling: the nikon v1/j1 ILC kits for approximately $300, which have a 1" sensor. olympus xz-1, $200, (Amazon), 1/1.6" canon s100, $250 (Amazon), 1/1.7" panasonic lx-7, $300, 1/1.7"
i did not do any research into the micro 4/3 system cameras or great deals on them during that period, but this could provide a baseline of options.
