Strange error in picture?

I was looking true my K-01 pictures and found a very strange error in (at least) one picture:

So this is K-01 with FA*85mm set at 1/500th, f2.0 and iso640


For the original image:

The camera isn't mine, but a demo. I read somewhere else also something strange. Is this lens error, camera error, SR?

Any ideas?

It looks like the shot was fired before the SR system was ready (i.e. no hand icon was shown).

Well that is one other thing, I shot jpg's and there is just limited info in the exif, so no info about SR. But the guy infront is sharp and the image get doubled in the corner.

It is wierd isn't it, Is it the only picture taken with the error? Could be a write issue when the jpeg was processed by the camera, At 1/500 I wouldn't expect lighting frequencey to have that effect.

lighting frequency
That was my thought but 1/500 does seem too fast. It almost look like a rolling shutter effect from digital video

There are a few more around that serie of images. This one was the first one I noticed. It was in one of the program modes. I set the camera to Sports and then it chose f2.0 and 1/500th setting. I was just toying around with the camera, since I was taking enough shots with my K-5 as well to cover the game.

Does that produce ghosting, i thought that "warp" the picture a bit but nothing more.

I'm more thinking about a double read-out or something like that.

I was thinking that perhaps another fan took a picture and the pre-flash burst (which is faster than 1/500) could have created a double exposed situation...but what baffles me is the guy sitting still in the chair all the way in the back is doubled as well. He wasn't moving but is doubled as well. Looks like it has to be some kinds of camera issue.
