K-30 Warranty Card?

Hi,
I just received my K-30 (w/ 18-55 kit lens) from Amazon today and can't find any warranty card in the box. Is there supposed to be one included?

I made sure to purchase directly from Amazon and not through one of those third party sellers on Amazon, and Amazon is listed as an authorized dealer.

Anyone else with a K-30 receive a warranty card in the box? What does it look like?

No. Your invoice with its date is the key to accessing warranty service via CRIS in the US.

Register the camera at:
Register a Product - PENTAX Imaging USA

The warranty info is found here:
Product Repair & Service - PENTAX Imaging USA

I would STRONGLY urge you to purchase the $19.95 Two-year extended warranty from Pentax for the K-30.

Thanks! Just wondering if the lack of warranty card meant that the camera was grey market. Good to know about the extended 2 year warranty.

If you bought it directly from Amazon it should not be. Go to Pentax and register it.

Would there be a problem ordering one from a 3rd party on Amazon and then getting the 2 year warranty? Currently the cheapest body only one on Amazon is through "Electronics Basket".

They ask for the invoice to determine if the item is under warranty. <1 year and from an AD are what they looked for on mine when I sent in my Grip (they actually highlighted both on the copy I sent them, which they sent back).

There are no warranty cards in the box , you have to register your product with Pentax and save your proof of purchase . You can purchase the extended warranty card at Adorama or Bh photo for 19.95 but you have to do it within 30 days of your purchase . Go to either web site and search for "Pentax extended warranty" . Also if you are traveling you can copy and send your proof of purchase and serial card to Pentax and they will issue an intenational warranty card . Do not pass up the 20 dollar extended deal ! The extended card also allows one free factory adjustment .
