Default K-7 3 year warranty

Hi All,

I just read the K-7 e-mail from Pentax (got it yesterday, but didn't really read it). I says that each K-7 will have an extended 3 year warranty and will include a coupon for a 15% discount on selected lenses, flashes, and binoculars.

I think they've gotten some good response with the K20 extended warranty and decided to add it as an incentive. Also, hopefully, the lens discounts will cover some of the LTDs for those Canon and Nikon shooters who might be considering a K-7 with some LTD primes as a compact carryaround system.

Good moves, I'd say. . .

Scott

Argggghhhhhh.......

Scott, you're making me want more and more to place a pre-order with Adorama on a K-7, even though I told myself I was going to wait and see real-world AF performance from it before I ordered.

Hi Paul,

Again we're thinking alike -- the money is burning a hole. . .

We in the north always have 2 yrs Canadian warranty as we pay typically 10-15% more. Now there is no excuse that it should command higher price at all.
