International Warranty for K-r?

My brother is about to get a K-r. He currently lives in the UK but is about to move back to Australia. Does anyone know if his warranty is accepted in Australia or will he have to send it back to the UK for servicing?

Thanks.

1. If it's bought through an approved Pentax dealer in UK, tell him to contact Pentax UK directly and explain the situation. They alone can adjudicate on policy and make the decisions so they need be consulted.
Ref: http://www.pentax.co.uk/en/Photo_Service.html

2. Conversely, if your bro doesn't have time for the above before returning (probably has so many other important things to attend to), he should contact C.R.Kennedy & Company Pty. Ltd. Welcome to C.R. Kennedy | Photographic, Digital, Medical, Surveying, Surveillance, Digital Audio. CR Kennedy. Australia after arrival who are the only official Pentax rep and distro in this country.

Let them make the call, and remember, Web forum opinions and claims don't count for jack shit on these things. I hope the information helps.

Also, don't forget that street prices on Kit K-r are being savaged here now (sub 600AUD specials have been neg'd from JBHiFi, an official dealer), so tell him it might be worth factoring that trend into his calcs., incl/excl of any VAT/GST advantage he can wrangle it could work out prudent to wait and save the transport and warranty exch hassles.
