if they aren't authorized then they are by implication Grey market. that will affect the warranty. All the complaints i've seen are related to the gray market issue and the way it's not clarified. I wouldn't buy a gray market item that costs 1400 bucks. I don't know of any manufacturer that will honour warranty work on items bought through unauthorized dealers

How'd ya manage that? btw, I've been wondering how risky it is to buy a K-5 from Japan... I mean, if something goes out and it needs warranty service, then I'd have to send it back to Japan?
I got the coupon after I sold my D40 to fund the K-5. An unexpected bonus
It would have to go to Japan for repair, which could be more time consuming. The good news is that according to B&H, I can still get the extended warranty, so at that point, I don't think it'd have to go back to Japan.

If it doesn't drop any lower than this in the next day or so(Used Amazon Warehouse deals @ $1,291.99 asside) I'm pulling the trigger at this price. Got prime, so next day air is cheap.

ABe's of Maine has K-5 body for 1275. I'm trying to figure why K-5 vs. K-7. B&H in NYC has it for 1279. But there are differences in extended warrantee available for purchase. B&H's is Very Expensive (389 for 5 years)

It's not even close in image quality, K-5 has a sensor far superior to the K-7 (it's 2 generations newer)
