Good luck with PRIC, they're answers so far have been 100% wrong on the K-30.
Well, there is SOMETHING to be said for consistency

Very nice way of looking for the bright side. My hat is off to you for finding one with PRIC.

You could ask the Pentax USA Facebook guy, he was the only one who knew what he was talking about in terms of K-30 release date. He told me it "had already shipped" that following week, and that it would "be in shelves this week", and before you knew it, 2 days later that same week the K-30 popped up in-stock on Amazon and BHPhotovideo.

He's probably already been fired for giving a straight answer.

This has got to be one of the best deals around - and I never go for the extended warranty for anything.

Very good deal.

I have learnt to always go for an extended warranty on Apple laptops.... I'm on my 6th and 5 have gone wrong in the 2nd or 3rd year.

Pentax has offered a 2-year extended warranty for each of its dSLRs over the past 5+ years for around $20. It's hands-down the absolute best deal Pentax has ever offered. It comes with a free cleaning in addition to the 2 more years of warranty coverage.

I can't seem to find one at B&H or Adorama. But I'd ask if I were buying a K-30.

Well I appreciate your monitoring here. Several folks have asked if the K-5 warranty card will work for the K-30 and I've told them that since it's for "K" cameras it should, but to check. I appreciate your confirming that it works for the K-30.

Yes, but you need BOTH the warranty card itself and BOTH receipts for it to be valid (camera and warranty). Congratulations!

Thanks, so many Pentax warranties at Adorama I had to call to confirm which to get for the K30, it's SKU: IPXEWKX.

Thanks for the SKU. Time well spent IMHO.

Will you be updating the page to specify that the K-5/K-r/K-X (I assume) warranty will cover the K-30 as well? The alternative, I expect, will be an endless series of questions on the issue.

Thanks for staying on top of this, Helen.
