I have been trying to avoid noticing all the great deals! Mine was ok...bought it through Ebay last week (for $869) and it finally arrived today, (9 days for free shipping) but I didn't remember to check the warranty situation and it turns out to be a Canadian only warranty... doh

Kaiserz, I don't know if you could get a extended +2 years manufacturer warranty with this for 20 bucks like you can on BHPhotovideo and Adorama. However there's an option on that K-5 from BeachCamera that allows you to get extended 3 year non-manufacturer warranty for an additional $99 or a extended 3 year non-manufacturer warranty that covers even accidents for $149.

EDIT: Nvm, I guess you can! Thanks Docrwm from above ^^ You might as well get the cheaper warranty for 20 bucks!
NEVER take the non-Pentax warranty on a new camera. The Pentax 2 year extension comes with a free cleaning on top of the warranty.

Don't forget the 2-year extended warranty for $20!

This may show my ignorance but it was pure chance that I found out that Pentax offers a $19 2 year extended warranty on their K body cameras. If I had known at the time I would have purchased one for my K-x. I did this time for the K5.

So, while old hands may be well aware that Adorama, B&H and other ADs sell these warranty cards for genuine Pentax extended warranty's for an absurdly low sum - I believe that many here may be completely unaware of this and miss an opportunity.

You must purchase the extended warranty, in the US at least, within 30 days of the purchase of your K model body. You need to keep copies of the invoice/sales receipt for both the camera and warranty along with the warranty card itself.

Pentax Two Years Extended Warranty for K Series Digital SLR Cameras.
FEATURES:
  • PENTAX Imaging Company warrants to the original purchaser the product to operate according to factory specifications for a period of three years from the original date of purchase (one-year standard + two-year extended)
  • Pentax will provide, at no charge, one complete check-up at any time during the warranty period. This includes inspection of all camera functions to see that they meet factory specifications.

I believe 4 days is the time the camera listing is up. However 1 day for the $100 off sale which is until the end of today in Pacific/California time. I wouldn't be surprised to see the price go back up to normal by tomorrow with 3 days left on the camera list.

Wow! That's amazing. I wonder how many of them are members here?
At least one "here"!! I literally had the K-5 in my Adorama shopping cart late last night but I was too tired and thought I'd complete the transaction tomorrow/today since I'll have to open an account. I called them today after business hours and was routed to their Asia call center. I asked if they will match it but unfortunately and understandably they cannot because the low price is from an auction site. So I dove on the $799 K-5 at Beach Camera....what have I done

I remember two years ago this time when the K-7 was down in the $700 mark... the K-5 came at Photokina. I suspect the same will happen this time as well. Which means that the K-5 has really been a great camera, sticking around for two years!

Oh yeah, and btw, this is about as good of price you'll ever find on a new K-5. Not to long from now the price will only go up...

I've got several spares and these from Amazon were indecently cheap and have worked amazingly well for me.

I can run my K-5 with its battery grip and those 2 batteries all day at Disney with my family and still have power left (fill 3 16gb cards per day - don't judge me )

Some crazy nuts are buying 3 at a time! People will hedge on anything...
