K-5 inconsistent exposure in wireless - two "new" questions

K-5 Master or Controller
Metz 58 AF-2 Slave (just one)
Pentax DA 55-300 or Sigma 17-70

I've read many posts here to conclude there IS a problem with either the hardware or firmware of the camera causing the inconsistent exposures. I've ruled the flash units out because it happens with the Petax ones also (from what people post); and it happens with different lenses for me and at different distances. Curious (I believe these are new questions), many are talking about it, but...
  • Has anyone actually sent their camera to CRIS (or anywhere) for servicing this issue? If so, what was done?
  • If you've experienced this issue, does putting a radio trigger on the hotshoe completely resolve the problem?
IF no servicing is being done to repair this issue, then CRIS and Pentax are unaware there is a problem. If they're unaware of a problem, there's no way this issue will be addressed in any firmware update (should that be a fix). Yes, I'm thinking of sending my K-5 back again in a few weeks since they apparently didn't look at the wireless exposure dilemma while there (just got it back for mirror overrun).
