Hello from Spain

Hello fellow pentax users!
I recently bought a k-5 and am happy with it but unfortunately had to send it back for servicing. I will explain that in better in a another thread in the right forum. Basically, upon switching on the camera, sometimes the sensor locks itself in a crooked position and so all the pictures are significantly crooked. This happen randomly, about 30% of the time. I have seen this forum someone with a K-7 that had the same problem (even posted a picture of the angleed sensor). So I joined the forum to get reviews on lenses and also see if other pentax users, especially k-5 users, had had the same problem. Attached are two photos showing the problem using a 8mm lens and using a 55mm lens. Unfortunately I was unble to photgraph the corroked sensor when it happen but here is a like to somehow had the same problem:

Has anyone had this problem? How was it fixed?

Welcome to the forum, if you ask your question in the Pentax K-5 forum I'm sure you'll get your answer.

Welcome !
A lot of my shots lean to the left but it is a brain issue I think
