Missing warranty card?

I just bought a k5 from adorama and there wasn't any kind of warranty card in the box. Is that normal or do you only get a card if you buy the extended warranty? I contacted customer service and they didn't answer my question they just told me about the extended warranty, is there no one year mfg warranty?

If something were to happen to your K-5 under warranty (one year) you would just send it in with your sales receipt. And if you did not buy the extended warranty for 2 additional years (3 total) I would recommend that you do so. You have 30 days from the date of purchase of your K-5 to do so. For $20 you not only get piece of mind but you get to have your sensor cleaned as well.Pentax 2 Years Extended Warranty for K5 / K30 / K01 / K series DSLR 80227

You don't need any card for the regular warranty -- just a copy of your adorama receipt. I just got a warranty repair on my K-5 -- I just put a copy of the receipt in the box and they did the repair for free with no questions asked. In my case it was a B&H receipt which I think has the serial # on it...

Everyone is correct - there is no warranty card included in the box - just a serial number card.
