Extended Warranty for K-7?

I'm looking at purchasing the K-7 through Amazon or B&H. Normally I don't purchase the Extended Warranty but I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to do so for a camera online. There are different offerings between B&H and Amazon.

Deciding on the Extended Warranty is the last decision I need to consider before purchasing and there are different warranty's with both vendors. Consumer Reports says Extended Warranty not needed but others have told me it was worth it for things they purchased.

Or if anyone can direct me to a site to explain the extended camera warranty. I tried to find a previous post on warranty on the forum but came up empty.

Or is this a non-issue and just buy the camera?

This is a non-issue. Just buy the camera.

Why? Because as long as the K-7 is officially imported (not gray market), Pentax offers you additional 2 year extended warranty at no charge for the total of 3 years. See this page.

Also, if you pay for your camera with gold/platinum VISA/MasterCard or AmEx, the credit card company doubles the normal 1 year warranty, including against theft and accidental damages.
