[langtitle=da]Pentax K-5 CMOS pletter/Stains[/langtitle]

My photo dealer in Germany - FotoKoch - says in an email answering my questions about the stain issue, that the stain issues have been solved. New cameras delivered are free of stains. Is this true?
(I'm expectng my K-5 to show up shortly).

No new K-5's that come off the assembly line should have the problem.

Currently produced cameras are free of stains, but there definitely could still be some cameras in stores that have stains that were produced prior to the middle of December. Best to check to be sure.
