Do you sell Pentax Extended Warranties?

Hi,

I just bought a K-5 from B&H, and wasn't able to find the Pentax Extended Warranty for sale on your site. So I talked to Pentax Imaging, and they told me I could buy one from them for $99, but that it might also be available from retailers.

Since B&H stocked the K-7 Extended Warranty (for a lot less than $99), I'm hoping I'll be able to buy a K-5 Extended Warranty from B&H as well sometime within the next couple of months. Will you be carrying it?

Mike

Hello,

I sent an E-Mail to our buyer. As soon as I hear back, I'll post what he says.

Pentax part number is:

Hi Chuck,

The Pentax part number for the K-5 Extended Warranty is 80227. Should B&H just be able to order it?

Hello,

If you purchased the camera from our Used Department, please contact them for info on a warranty. If not, no I am sorry.

Product Number Confirmed

Hi Chuck,

The Pentax product number for this is definitely 80227. According to Pentax, the K-5 is covered by the standard K series extended warranty.

I also just asked Pentax via their web chat what the part number was and they said 80227.

Another question: Does this have to be purchased with the camera?

Nope, it only needs to be purchased and registered within 90 days, according to Pentax.

I normally NEVER get an extended warranty, but after having to send my K-5 in, I'm rethinking that attitude. It would be a great gesture on the part of Pentax if they gave it free or at a reduced price to people who had sensor issues.


EDIT: I just chatted with Randall at Pentax US and he told me that they are replacing K-5's with stains, and the camera's warranty will begin on the date it's replaced.

Anybody know how much the extended warranty should cost. I would have expected it to be at least $100, but I see buy.com lists the 80227 warranty for $30.
