Extended warranty quesion?

I bought a new K-3 in May (no problems and love the camera) - how can I purchase an extended warranty? Bought it on the net.

Check with the seller, if they are not an authorized dealer than they may not be able to offer it. Possibly there is an outside chance of purchasing a factory one through B&H or Adorama if your purchase is not more than 30 days. Contact them to see what they have to say.

B&H or Adorama will sell one to anyone with $20. Keep your camera receipt. In the past some folks had called Pentax's service line, and were told somewhere up to 90 days. however Pentax never asks for the receipt from the warranty. From time to time B&H or Adorama run out of the warranty "cards" and they go on back order, that is apparently the reason for the "relaxed" purchase time-frame.
