It isn't a bug; it's a crappy sensor

I promised I'd follow up on my previous thread about whether or not my new K-5 has a bug or something else. It was NOT "pilot error" causing the severe CA I had using the 35mm DA Limited Macro lens, but a defective sensor.
Waiting for a replacement camera to be approved and shipped and will post one more follow up to see if this is fixed or needs more attention.

Just curious, did you get it mail order or did they have one in stock over at the Wolf Camera on the West Bypass? Last time I was in there, they had Pentax items, but none of the current bodies (last year this time)

Sorry! Did some equipment swapping at Wings Camera and he got this from the distributor for me. Pentax itself will be replacing it. I hadn't even had a chance to register the camera before I went to Colorado with it! 8o(
Trying to use ACR auto correction was a BIG fail the CA is so bad! I was really upset because this was the first time I'd been able to get back there to see family in 6 years and at least half the photos shot under all sorts of conditions and with 2 lenses show really bad CA, dang it!
