Are you certain there are NO stain issues with B&H K-5's

The following thread from this forum has me gun-shy for sure. His build date is in 2011!!:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-k-5-forum/144369-stains-found.html

How confident are you that I will not receive a defective K-5 if I order in the next couple of days? How long do I have to return it if I find the stain issue, and will I receive a completely new camera?

It seems there is certainly some risk though. The guy on the link I provided via this forum bought his K-5 in late April of 2011 and it has a Pentax manufacturing date of 2011-02-21. Pentax press release says they resolved the issue in week 50 of 2010, so December of 2010. I get some comfort knowing B&H has seen no issues as of late, but geez, why does a guy need to feel like he is taking a risk with the price tags of these things

I'd still like to know if B&H would take the camera back for a return if I discover "The Stain"?

Thanks,
Steve
