"Should Pentax do the same?"

Hey- it worked for the Korean auto industry!

Yeah, but would it work for Pentax?

  • 10 year or 100000 frames non-transferable warranty, but only for the PRIME engine and the sensor

  • 2 year or 40000 frames warranty for the whole camera, transferable

  • you must bring the camera to a, authorized service centre each year/after 12000 frames (whichever is first), for a customer-paid maintenance; otherwise you'll lose the warranty

  • you'll need a "photographer license" to operate a camera, much like the driver license (attesting your skill - hey, that wouldn't be such a bad idea!)

  • you'll be fined if caught shooting at over 4 fps, 2 fps in towns.
