Yes I am (it's a 1 year warranty right?), my first warranty claim with the Pentax / Ricoh, hope it goes smooth!
Yes, well, good. Even better if you just bought it in the last week or two from a place like B&H where you could get a quick exchange without waiting on warranty service...

Have you upgraded your camera's firmware? You'll potentially experience issues like what you're describing without the update that adds compatibility for the adapter.

That is an even easier solution if it works.

I think 1.10 introduced the adapter, so you're good on that front and I'd just get it exchanged.

Update:
I was able to compare mine with another brand new genuine K->Q adapter and the results were the same. The effect is mostly visible at 1/1000 and with high contrast settings (like Bold Monchrome) on the Q.
I conclude that it's in the nature of the leaf shutter at such a high speed, and 1/1000 is very fast for a shutter of this type.
If anybody wants to try, compare 1/1000 vs 1/1250 at which point only the electronic shutter is used. You will see that there is uneven illumination causing a sort of hot spot in the center. FYI.

Thank God I didn't have to deal with Precision Camera Repair ...
