I just called Adorama and they still said it would be in stock "at the end of the month".. So I cancelled the order and placed an order at B&H and now have confirmed order which I hope ships today....

I guess that is because the 2 year extended warranty is not valid in Florida and the Commonwealth of Virginia:
I know I can't buy it in Virginia technically. The store is in New York and the service center is in Colorado. I already called to confirm that Pentax will still take the warranty. B&H just wouldn't get a manger to override the computer, so I had to go through Adorama. They had no problem selling it to me. It is some stupid law in Virginia designed to protect consumers. It applies more to local dealers than to consumers.

Ok - I found this weird being for those 2 states anyway. Glad you found a work around for the great 2 year warranty.

Now this begs the next question - do you'all in Virginal feel more protected since the state seems to know better than you?

Well I am upgrading from a K10D, so you can understand my frustration. I am just kidding around with you anyway.

I don't feel more protected. I don't really understand it. The Bestbuy that used to work for sold service plans on everything in Virginia. I am not sure what the difference between those an extended warranties are anyway. Oh well...like you said at least I found a work around.
