Three bad K-50s with the same error? Viewfinder vs Live View different exposures?

See a post here in K-50 forum, and my posts in Troubleshooting where I included pictures.

Between this gentleman and myself we have three K-50s [ I am in possession of two right now] giving different exposures on the same pic thru viewfinder vs live view.

Is this possibly correct, or do we have three defective cameras?

Please, please, please stop posting so many threads. It won't help you.

Aperture block is a somewhat common occurrence with K-30/50 cameras.

Someone please close this thread.

There's nothing wrong with your cameras. See my reply here, and please continue discussion in the other thread if you still need help with the settings:
