Waiting again

So I received my third K-5 over a holiday vacation (first two went back with the stain). While testing for the stain on this one, I noticed no "stain" but several dark dust motes. I was glad I was on holiday in a bigger city as I was able to have it looked at by a technician and try several cleaning attempts. The dust motes WOULD NOT go away. Rocket blower, wet clean, in camera clean, etc. So, with much frustration, I decided to send the body into Pentax and have them sort it out.

Basically, I am EXTREMELY frustrated with the QC at Pentax, and I'm axiously awaiting the repaired body so I can finally start enjoying this thing. This is now the 5th week of battling QC issues on the K-5, with the third body. I have images of the motes, but I am so tired of looking at them that I'm not going to post.

I hope everyone else is having better luck with their K-5's. It works like a dream, when clean.
