update on lens purchase

They had four when I pushed the button last night. I also have a 16-45 trucking its way west from them, about $320 new. That lens has fine reviews even if it's not the latest thing
My TriState update: the 16-45 arrived today, looks fresh and new. The only item of a dubious nature is the warranty card is for the 2-year Canada warranty with no USA comments.

Do I howl & raise a fuss with TriState? I'll post to pentax support first.

The K-7 is about halfway here, expected Monday. Free shipping, so I can afford to be patient

It looks like its legit... I opened the box and look at the serial # on the warranty card, and it matches to the one on the camera. I even have the rebate form from pentax for lenses, flash, and binoculars. I got this rebate form before when I bought my K2000 from amazon which I used to buy the da40. The camera looks like its untouched!!!!! Shipping went 3 business days, Box is excellent condition. I havent take any pictures yet, im just charging the battery for now. i want to see how many shutter count the camera has? I will inform you how much.

how would you know if its a grey market new boxes? I really have no idea how it looks like.
did it have a USA warranty card ?? if not be sure to get one from Pentax directly.
were all the manuals etc in US English primarily ?
was the adapter for the battery charger US based ?
did you register your serial number on the camera with Pentax yet ??
use a software called PHOTOME and check the shutter count on a picture taken with this camera, Shutter count shows how many times pictures have been taken with the camera..shutter count value should be very low to begin with.

I think these might indicate if there is any issue with Grey Market models...i think Tri-state is an authorized dealer and when i spoke to Pentax they said that chances of getting grey market model is less if they are an authorized dealership..and that Pentax would honor a 3 year warranty on K7 if bought from any US Authorized Dealer as long as you can send them a packing slip or other forms of proof of purchase..

Belated update #2 - Tristate did me no wrong. Cam looks and acts new, papers are in order, about 500 shots. Such a deal and what a camera compared to Alpha200 and K100d, all the same size essentially which was important to me. Timing is everything, and though the price may fall again in a month or two I'm satisfied.

Have anyone got the 2 years warranty?

If it works for someone, I will push the trigger.

I sent the paperwork to Pentax for the extended warranty and i got the extended warranty card from Pentax within a week. so now the camera is covered by a 3 year warranty.

Didnt have any problems with the Tristate ordering through Ebay.

if you buy from ebay, use Bing Cashback to knock the price down by another 8% bringing it to about 745 shipped.
