I emailed Ricoh to get the info straight from the horse's mouth and this is what they told me:

"Amazon.com itself is an authorized RICOH reseller and any product fulfilled by them would be covered by a standard manufacturer's one year warranty."

Sounds pretty official! I agree it is annoying that they don't publish a list of dealers.
I got the same response. But zippo about authorized dealers as well, although I asked directly.

Good for Pentax

It's not just the K1 that's out of stock. The DFA 24-70 is also at least at B&H, Adorama, Amazon.

Hmmm. Wonder what duty I'd have to pay if I brought one back stateside?

And BTW, what's the asking price up there in Loonies?

In worthless Canadian loonies it's currently at $2499.95, to think a couple years ago it would have been under $2000 in Can dollars. But what can you do. Alberta also has a 5% sales tax that would be on top of that.

At least we have 2 year warranties on Pentax gear up here

After I kvetched to Amazon they said they'd put up the warranty, and sure enough it's here: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71EQt2E4TzS.pdf

You can find it on the K-1 product page under "Product Information>Technical Specifications>Other" (not Technical Details).

I have been waiting for a while now for my amazon order to ship. There are no camera stores around me to see if they have them in stock. If anyone knows of a location where they have the K-1 in stock, please let me know!

When did you place your order? As I said earlier in this thread I ordered my K-1 on May 8 and it arrived today, May 16. That's a delay of only 3 business days.

I placed my order thru amazon a week ago and nothing yet. I keep checking with B&H and Adorama, B&H says middle of July, Adorama never has a clue when they will get more in. Been a long time Pentax Shooter and never thought It would be this tough to find a camera!

I will keep my fingers crossed for you as well! I know the feeling all to well. I ordered the K-1, 28-70mm 2.8, IR Remote, battery grip and new tripod. Everything has been delivered except the K-1. I heard good things about ordering through Pentax on amazon so I did. No update yet on when it might ship. At least give us an estimated ship date haha. Part of me wants to cancel my order and place a new one thru Adorama but I will give it until the end of this week.

Well if by "a week ago" you mean May 9, that's only a day after I ordered mine. I can't imagine it will be much longer. (However I got an estimated delivery date via email 2 days after I ordered, which turned out to be accurate.)

That gives me some hope! As of today I have only received a confirmation email (the same day I placed the order) from amazon that says "Delivery date pending. We'll email you as soon as we have a delivery date." No other communication since then but I am sure the wait will be worth it.

I wish places would give an estimate of when they will ship again. I know they probably can't but the waiting is driving me batty

Was finally able to get in contact with a company that is receiving 6 K-1's this week! Canceled my order with Amazon and placed my order with them! If you are still looking for a K-1 let me know and I will send you their information.
