Colourful line in a picture

Hello friends,

I recently got the Pentax SMC FA 50 mm f/1.4 Standard Autofocus Lens, when I mounted it on Pentax K5, and shot few pictures in a P mode. It gives me colorful lining on the right hand side, does anyone know what it is? It does not give it on all pictures but many of them had it.

Hello Adam,

Thanks for your reply. I checked closely and this line is in every single picture. Please take a close look and you will see black vertical line on the left hand side also.

Hi Utkarsh.....don't worry about this. This happens to me when I view my raws through Picasa....some bad settings. It doesn't appear on the photo if you preview it through other program.
