I just want to say that I ordered on the last go-round from QuicknDone and my K3 appeared new, but had smudges on the LCD window and a huge fingerprint in the viewfinder. I didn't bother to check the shutter count before I started playing around with it, but it had definitely been handled sometime after it left the factory.

Not to argue.
I got a K3 from the last round, too. The shutter count seems to be close to 0.

I got one from them in Black Friday deals and it was absolutely brand new. Shutter count 0. Still haven't seen that good of a deal anywhere. Should have bought 2. I wouldn't hesitate for one second to buy from them again.

Hi all,
Funny this came up here.I was just looking at those k3s today on Ebay and dropped Quickndone an email to check if these were grey market or if they had warranty good in the USA.

The reply...
QuoteQuote:
This camera includes a 1 Year Pentax International warranty which is valid in the USA.

Thanks

- quickndone
Does Pentax offer an international warranty?

I'm in for one as well! Anyone looking for a pristine K-5? I'll be posting mine in the For Sale thread in a few days, providing all goes well.

Thanks, Borrelli, for the info on the International Warranty. Good to know.

Just thought I would follow up in case anyone was doubting my sanity. My camera just recorded image 262 according to the sequential numbering system. Shutter count when uploaded to the shutter count checker on this site is 271. Camera works fine as far as I can tell. I just wanted to give my $0.02 on what I had received.

Thanks for the heads-up. Guess it'll take me a while to find out what I'll get. It's on its way to my US forwarding adress with UPS ground. From there it has to be shipped to me. I'll report back when I have it.

I have received my K-3 today. It is completely new with a manufacture date of 11th February 2015. Never been touched. Good seller.


Btw, I just saw they have the same deal again at the moment.

Mine was a 2yr Canada warranty. I believe that translates to a 1yr USA warranty. Either way I got my first one $619 on Black Friday sale and had not been touched and count was 1 on my first image. Second one was $599 right after Christmas count was also 1 on first image...... I would buy from them again in a second.

For those sitting on the fence, I just want to add this: for those living in the USA, you will likely get 1 yr. International warranty (letter with copy of invoice to Ricoh USA will likely get you a International certificate). For us in Canada, we get 2 yr. warranty (but we also have to pay sales tax) whereas those in the US don't have to (therefore cheaper) - in essence, the tax we pay goes for 1 additional yr. of warranty.
