What happened here? 10-17

Picked up a Pentax 10-17 last week and had something unusual happen today. Ended up with about 10 pictures with the lens hood (built in) showing. Restarting my K-30 resolved the issue. Almost looks like the mirror didn't sit properly or any ideas?

Had no issues before this or after restarting.

One with the issue, one without.

That is odd. The "hood" is not even centered on the image. Looking at my lens right now, I'm not even sure how you can get that particular overlap without something along the top and bottom edge. There is something on the right side as well.

Looks as if a part of the sensor that was used to capture the image was outside of the image circle.

Could be because shake reduction hadn't come to rest and horizon correction was enabled to boot.

My K-30 did that once - the image was consistently higher than what I (thought I) was aiming at. Turning off/on cured it in my case, as well. At the time, I thought that I might have turned on composition adjustment accidentally.

I'll post some more photos'....This happened for 13 consecutive photo's over a 3 1/2 minute period. Photo taken 38 seconds before the first messed up shot was fine...no settings changed....continued until I power cycled and then stopped. Can't imagine shake reduction coming to rest would cause that.....Horizon correction is off.

Here is the photo before as well as all the pictures this happened too. No settings change between the 1st and any in this sequence.

I believe this is what happened. If you look in my sequence above where I took a few shots of my car, you will see it took me 3 shots to get the car centred. 1st shot the car was centred in the view (optical viewfinder). Took me 3 tries to get it to actually happen though as I compensated. Although this is a new lens to me, I can't imagine that it can be anything to do with the lens.....

It has to be an error with the sensor position and shake reduction. You should contact pentax service for your camera.
