Since it's fulfilled by Amazon and most prices from that seller are MAP, I don't think so.

it was my impression that 'fulfilled by amazon' meant that the seller (great lakes) sent their inventory in to an amazon shipment center and then amazon handled the shipping and customer service but that did not mean that your item was bought from amazon (as a certified reseller). I could be wrong though. the quick google search is inconclusive.

One quick way to find out is to register it right away with pentax. If the serial # doesn't come up it is grey. Send it back to Amazon for free, no risk.
