The User Report:-
The first two posters in the thread reported the same issue!
It is just so mysterious for a digital camera to have such a (hardware?) bug and problem, which has never been seen and reported for *any* digital camera! Not even for the previous Pentax DSLRs which could be infamous for the poor quality control for various (common) issues. Really Amazing! ( but :-( and why? How come? ) Afterall, it proves again no good the quality control of the K-7 is, IF Any.
