DA* 50-135mm f2.8 with 8-year worldwide warranty?

Anyone familiar with the worldwide 8-year warranty on the new Pentax DA* 50-135mm f2.8 lenses at Prodigital2000?

Went ahead and paid for one anyway, guess I will find out one way or another but was just curious.

You might want to contact ProDigital2000

I'll just keep my fingers cross for you that they actually have the 50-135 in stock and that you get it

I'm still waiting for them to ship the DA70 I bought from them almost 4 weeks ago (via ebay). You may want to email in a day or two to confirm that they sent it out. I never got an email until I contacted them a week after the sale, then found out that they "oversold" their DA70 supply and wouldnt be getting more until the end of Feb.

I made the payment last night but called them a few hours ago with a "bing" question, and was told the lens hadn't left yet.

No mention of out-of-stock but nothing was said about it being in stock either. So here's hoping I'll get it before a big family event in 9 days.

Yes, someone I spoke with at Prodigital2000 (Carman's Foto Source) a couple of hours ago mentioned that the 1st year is covered with Pentax as usual, and the remaining through MACK.

Apparently they work with local resources to address any issues.

I picked up a 70mm from them about 4 weeks ago with the Mack warrentee. Great price, took 2 weeks to get it. Looks like I was lucky.

This happened to me when I bought my DA40 from them. Wasn't a big deal except for the waiting.

Got an email today with a tracking number, with an expected Feb 26th delivery date.

Not bad. Not bad at all.

I purchased my FA 77mm from them and it was sent out the next day. I received it in about 7 days (from Canada to California)

Thanks for the link.

There were a total of two reviews from last year, both negative although I haven't read them in detail.

And others from 2008 and beyond seem to be mixed. Not that it matters in my case now anyway, since I already bought the lens and will have 1-year Pentax coverage.

Dan, guess I was lucky this time; it was waiting for me on the dining table when I got home from work today!
