Thanks for your input everyone. I'll be getting in touch with Ricoh and my vendor to see what my options are. I appreciate your feedback and advice on this issue!

Hey all,
Just to give an update on this: I brought the camera in to a certified Pentax repair location where they told me that since I have a Japanese warranty, it might not be valid in Europe. However, today I was informed that the camera will be repaired in within the next two weeks, free of charge. This is great news for me as it saves me a lot of hassle. I appreciate Pentax being so accommodating, and judging from the responses to my thread, my camera really does seem to be an outlier in terms of this defect.

I know this has been resolved but I wanted to add some info in the event that someone else finds this thread in the future. If you don't have another SD card, or don't believe it to be the problem, putting the camera in Live View should show you the defect without the SD card even being involved.
