Yes it would have been great PR if Pentax had admitted the problem and offered a reasonably priced solution. I doubt it would have affected sales! In my area now there is a white K30 for sale with a 35mm lens. It is tempting but having been burnt once..... Asking price $400 Canadian. Oh well.........
Don't... I paid a fourth of that for a barely-out-of-the-box used one, with the GMSP issue (that's Italian... I reckon it could be something like Program-Line Magnet Group, PLMG? ).

It's much better to buy used in this case, and use it as a guinea pig...

Nearly three years ago, KEH charged me $250 for K-30 + 18-55mm lens; counter was 3.
