Has anybody actually received theirs yet? i recall that some were due delivery around now. Another question, does anyone know if those shipped overseas are covered under manufacturer warranty? I looked at the Amazon global returns and if the product is faulty it seems the customer is to bear the cost of shipping, import taxes and duties back to Amazon US.

For manufacturer warranty for overseas buyers, my understanding is Amazon US will cover it for the first 30 days upon receipt of the good (this is their standard policy for all of their products). If the product becomes defective in the first 30 days, they will cover return shipping etc and will offer a replacement or refund.

However, after 30 days, Amazon US no longer take any responsibility and you'll have to contact Pentax USA directly and I've got no idea whether Pentax USA will even deal with overseas buyers for warranty claims. So I'm just hoping the camera will last more than 12 months.

See Warranty Information and click on International Warranty Card when you get there.

Cheers.

I've read previously that manufacturers don't offer international warranty cards to overseas buyers who buy through online vendors like Amazon, B&H Video and Adorama. I'm not sure whether this also applies to Pentax though.

You can take what you've read on the internet as gospel and forget the link I posted, or you can follow through with the link and see what comes out of it. Your choice.

Cheers.
