Hi Brent. FYI, prodigital2000 is an authorized Pentax dealer. They are based in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. Price increases don't seem to have come to Canada yet... That being said, I note you are in Denmark, so relatively speaking, perhaps that makes it grey market from a warranty perspective? I can say that because I am in Canada and bought from prodigital vs BH, I have a standard 2-yr warranty from Pentax Canada, vs Pentax Canada honouring just one year if I bought from the U.S. I don't think this is exactly grey market. I think in these times of overseas internet sales, free trade, etc., the definition of grey market may need to be reconsidered, if I haven't misunderstood you.

I would not worry about it! I bought the DA 100 WR from Pro digital 2000 they sell a ton of Pentax stuff. The lens came with a 7 year mac warranty, now almost two years on I'm better protected than if I had bought from an Authorized dealer.

Grey market has been carefully explained on a recent thread here on the forum.

B+H has some info on grey market gear.

I hope this helps.
