K-5 Warranty

Hello everyone, i'm looking forward to joining the ranks of Pentaxians with a pickup of a K-5. I just have a couple of questions before I pull the trigger. First, has anyone bought from The Camera Store in Calgary, Alberta? I'm in the States, but they seem to have a great balance between price and positive buyer reviews. Secondly, is it true that Pentax is not currently including warranty cards in the box? I e-mailed an Amazon retailer, and they said that Pentax just requires a receipt for warranty service. Also, i've seen some blurbs on different forums about sensor spots with the K-5. Is this an issue that I still need to worry about, or was that on earlier production models? Thanks in advance for any info.

The Camera Store is excellent. Pentax Canada includes a 2 year international warranty with their equipment, though I would check with your local distributor to ensure that they will honour the international warranty.

Sensor stains should not be an issue any longer, unless you get a box that has been sitting on the shelf for a long time. Which is not likely.

Warranty card was in my box, with a note to go to a website to register the warranty. When I went to the website it did not work and official word from Pentax was just keep the receipt. I registered the camera, but not the warranty. Made photocopies of the receipt and warranty card and filed them away.

Welcome by the way!
