AFAIK used Pentax cameras and lenses will NOT have a transferable warranty. Correct me if I am misinformed. If my understanding is correct then that should be factored into any savings in the above listings.

I do not believe that cameras and lenses, etc. have transferrable warranties as a rule, so when someone sells something and says there is X months left of the warranty, that is meaningless to the buy AFAIK, and maybe even misleading.

The 10% off coupon is relevant only when Amazon Warehouse is the seller, not any third party sellers. Amazon does not itself claim any used items to have a warranty, although it is possible to purchase a warranty from Square Trade, which of course you need to factor into the cost. The benefit of buying used from Amazon Warehouse is the easy 30 day return policy (full refund minus return shipping, unless it's not in the condition described, then return shipping is free.)

Edit: Coupon is expired

In Canada it is the item which has a warranty, not the paper on which the invoice is written. You just have to keep that invoice to prove the purchase date.

What happens when you buy something for someone else, say as a gift?

I think in order to claim the warranty, you have to have proof of the original sale from an authorized vendor. So if I buy a camera as a gift, I would give the recipient a copy of the receipt in case they need any warranty service. Same if I sell used, I think - so long as I give the original receipt to the buyer, they can claim warranty service. In this case, I doubt Amazon Warehouse is an authorized vendor, and they wouldn't send you the original receipt from whoever did sell the camera originally, so you wouldn't be able to claim the warranty. (Although it depends - Amazon receipts for marketplace items can be confusing and might let you get away with saying "I bought this from Amazon.")

Or I could be completely wrong about all of the above

I was helping a friend last week, and we were looking at a warehouse rx100. (Sorry guys) Before the coupon it was $440. Now it's $480. Just beware that some prices may have been 'adjusted' to reflect the coupon being out there.
