K-5 II at RytherCamera for 759
Posted By: pdm, 06-17-2013, 07:52 PM

RytherCamera has the K-5 II here:

Pentax K-5 II Camera Body Only

I know the Yelp ratings for them suck, but it seems like they would at least notify me if I was getting Macau or HK market stuff.....right?!

They will call you if you order a grey market item, and then try to upsell. You might be able to score a deal, but I'm not shopping there again

Thanks for the quick response! One issue I haven't seen raised in the many threads on Grey Market items here on the forums is this.. If I end up with a grey market Macau camera, can I have the warranty taken care of in Macau? Or does the grey definition hold true there as well since I didn't buy it there??

And the potential for issues and troubles with repairs service isn't worth the couple hundred bucks you will "save".

Last I looked into RC, they use their own in house local camera repair, not Pentax. That's is how they can go budget price. Pentax USA says (by phone) that they'll honor the USA warranty from any U.S. seller. Likey not for outside USA, though you'll have to ask both RC and the local Pentax warranty people in your area.

Odd how this place says the "regular" price is $1,300, when Adorama has it for $996 with a $100 instant rebate.

Oh, and does anyone else notice that the picture is not of the camera but a lens?
