Just got my K-01 a few days ago. Great IQ so far but the cheap rubber flap is driving me nuts. It won't stay closed. Such a simple part, made so cheap and poorly engineered on the right side where you are trying to manipulate the camera and work the controls...maybe mines a factory defect?...anyone else having the same issue?

Steve Huff reported that his flap never really properly closes.

I hate those rubber things. Love my K100D for having proper doors which even snap to a full close. I always thought the "weather sealing" argument made for the K-7/K-5 was a bit of a lame excuse for a cheap solution but as the K-01 is not weather sealed, it could have enjoyed proper doors.

Same as the K-5, 16Mp Sony (I believe) Exmoor CMOS sensor with the new Pentax Prime M imaging engine and (we think) a weaker AA filter.
