Pentax Warranty for K5 back in stock at B&H

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that the Pentax Warranty is available again from B&H. It is only $19.95 and it extends coverage by 2 years.

For a new camera purchase, does this extend the warranty by 2 years or to 2 years?

I looked at the one at Adorama and it said not applicable in Florida. Are there any that are?

from pentax imaging...NOT VALID IN FLORIDA,THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA OR WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW. THIS U.S.A. EXTENDED WARRANTY IS ONLY VALID WHEN CAMERA IS SENT TO PENTAX IMAGING COMPANY.

must be the laws in those respective states... doesn't seem right/fair.... dave m..

That's what I thought... there are many things to love about living in the sunshine state. Our state government is not one of those things -- and this comes from someone who works for a county government and has to deal with these people all the time.

If you guys really want it, call them up and they will charge you and ship the papers when they come. That's what I did before they came back in stock just now.

They run out of the warranty papers that Pentax sends them. They have to wait for more to be sent.

This has got to be the cheapest piece of insurance around. Normally, I do not pick up the warranty option. However, with my K20 Pentax offered as part of the package. 18 months later, I was getting terrible noise so I sent the body in for warranty repair. Pentax replaced the sensor and the main circuit board - essentially the guts of the entire camera. For the $9.99 or $19.99 or whatever they are charging for the K5 warranty (at least in this price range), its has to be an absolute bargain of the year. On the K20, it includes a free cleaning - so that alone is worth the price.
