K5 HDR Artifact

I've been doing HDR on my K5 for several months now. I usually shoot 5 brackets on a tripod of course. Since I've started, I've gotten this artifact line on the right side of my processed image. When viewing the images individually, there is no artifact.
At first I thought that it was a lense issue, but the problem is on all my lenses that I've tested. So I'm guessing that it's a sensor issue. It even exists when I use the 2second pause in my bracket.
No issues when doing Brackets on my K20.
I Merge in PhotoMatix. Any Thoughts?

it's your software (PhotoMatix). i was experiencing the same thing with Picasa. try a different software, perhaps a trial version, and see what you get.

Thanks for the input. I contacted Photomatrix, and they said that they are aware of the issue. They are currently working on it with version 4.1. It's a DNG issue, they suggest that I use Tiff or another format before sending them to the program.
-----Thanks, Jeff
