Suddenly a sticky shutter release button

Suddenly when i grabbed my camera out of its bag i noticed the shutter release button was acting strange, when i press it and remove my finger from the button, the button is a bit "stuck" and suddenly pops up. This simply happened without reason, no fluids came into contact of my camera at all ever. Next to that i only have around 2500 shutter actuation's.

Is this a known issue?

No it isn't. It was like that with my K-7 too. Don't worry so much...

Probably the rubber seal I guess. Should be easy to replace.
