Bummed Out - Defective mode dial on brand new K50- replacement received)

Was looking forward to spending some time this weekend with the new K-50 I received from Adorama today. Unfortunately, the mode dial is defective. Both the movie and auto selections on the dial give you the movie mode. It'll be going back to Adorama tomorrow for a replacement. I've purchased a boatload of camera's in my day and this is the first time I've ever got a bad one. I guess it had to happen sooner or later. Hopefully, Adorama can turn it around quickly.

New Replacement K-50 with 18-135 kit received

UPS dropped off my new replacement K-50 / 18-135 kit last night as the first one I received had a malfunctioning mode dial. The week wait for it to arrive was worth it as this K-50 has a manufacture date of 2/2015 where the other one had a 9/2013 date. Plus, I received the free flucard with this one. I took it out this afternoon before it began raining again and managed to test out a few shots. All good so far.

It's nice to know that it's fairly new stock.
