Pentax K-1 Mirror slap issue?

Well I saw a lot of comments from Asian country about K-1's mirror slap issue that create quite blurry images. Does anyone have this issue at 1/125 with tripod?

+1. I had done that, mistakenly reversed it, but have now rectified my mistake.

It's possible there are problems with SR turned on using a tripod. IMO this is user error if bad images are a result.

I always thought the specific advice was to turn SR off when using a tripod.

Indeed! That's what I was thinking, perhaps the user reporting an issue had SR turned on.

Can you link us to a 'lot of comments from Asian country?' I'm curious about this because I shoot a lot from a tripod. Pentax is quite proud of the new mirror assembly and featured it on the K-1 Special Site as a technical achievement. It would be a great help to me to actually read the comments.
