Pentax K- X warranty (80227)

mornin all.......

just purchased the extended k-5 warranty from adorama (in stock with them, b+h always seemingly out of inventory, not their fault.... but still the best imho ).. for 19.95.....
adorama's website however lists the pentax 80227 2 year warranty for the k-x and k-r, but excludes the k-5 from the description...
i spoke with pentax in north carolina...800-877-0155. and this genuine pentax 80227 warranty should cover ALL pentax (new) dslr 'k' bodies.... as the warranty card will denote...(does not specifically say for k-5 or k-r)
i asked them to confirm, and then to let everyone know that a purchase of a new 'k' body is eligible for this warranty....(caveat... b+h has a the same pentax warranty for the k-7 for 8.95, another sweet deal).....
hope this 'pans' out for us lovers of pentax...... dave m

Would an extended warranty be valid with a K-x bought in April last year?

don't think so.... i believe the warranty must be purchased within 90 days of initial purchase..... goofy that pentax does not make it clear that this warranty is for (ostensibly) all k bodies..... but i'd make absolutely sure by calling them first..
btw... this IS the same warranty pentax sells directly to 'us' for 99.95 !!!
