No warranty, no returns/refunds, no service, no QC, no responsibility, no recourse.
Just perfect for a high-risk drink-n-drive chainsmoke no-condom no-speed-limit lifestyle.
Do you feel lucky? [/me speaks in Dirty Harry voice]

So what's the moral of the story? Buy from trusted stores

I bought my K-5 from Amazon and it had stains on the sensor, they sent me a new one and told me to return the old one after I received the new one. You want that kind of service. problems are unlikely but they do to be safe. I have heard good stories about B&H also.
