good news ?? no more stains...

forgot i'd even made this inquiry....
from b+h photo... (best retailer i've dealt with for a number of years)

Hello , my name is Dan W:

Thank you for contacting the B&H E-Mail Sales Department.

Pentax has corrected the problem with the sensor stains and the current ones we have in stock are not affected by the problem. They arrived very recently.

Our website is live with our stock and current pricing. Please add the items to your shopping cart to determine the shipping costs, shipping options and shipping duration.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Thank you, we appreciate your business.

Thats good news since my local store, Ace Photo in Ashburn, VA, just sent mine back for dealer initiated repair or replacement. I actually hope Pentax is just replacing these returns since that should be a much faster turnaround.

So here's hoping that B&H is right and that Pentax is no longer shipping defective cameras.

Ace was absolutely great in this situation considering that they are handling this despite me being a couple of days beyond their 2 week return policy! They actually offered a instant replacement, but both of the K-5s they had in stock also had stains (so they are going back too).
