Recently I wanted to save money on a larger purchase, so I decided to order from Ryther camera, who seemed to have better prices than trusted retailers like B&H and Adorama. I went ahead and placed my order, and the next day, they call me and tell me that the "version" of the camera I ordered didn't come with a warranty. They then proceeded to try selling me a third-party warranty as well as throwing in accessories such as an extra battery. I almost fell for it, but I ended up cancelling with them and placing the order at B&H, which was processed immediately and shipped the next day. I'm not saying that you should avoid looking for deals, but sometimes, trying to save a few bucks really won't do you much good Just something to keep in mind. With all of the MAP policies in place, any authorized dealer that sells items for less than the MAP would be in serious trouble.

I just took in my K5 and 50-135 for auto focus tuning and CLA today. Pentax/Ricoh asked, "did you buy this from an authorized Canadian retailer"? Yes I did, Prodigital2000, and because of this I have a 2 year warranty on both body and lens. Sweet, low prices and trusted retailer. YMMV

Buydig is legit. I bought my k-r there, and CRIS honored the warranty.

You can call them over the phone to place your order if it is an issue with Pentax's new pricing policy. They will still honor the codes.

I don't know about being an authorized dealer or not, but I have bought several cameras through them over the years including my K10 a few years back. They never game me any hassle and everything was delivered as promised. Thankfully, I have never needed the Pentax warranty for any body so far.
