I will say this, if it were an epidemic issue, it would be all over the internet and not isolated cases. Don't worry about it, get the camera you want.
It took three years for problems to show with my K-30. The K-70 hasn't been out long enough to be certain about it, but in the month since this was posted several users have made posts suggesting it might not be quite right..
