This has happened a couple of times with my K-30, especially before a few firmware updates. This never happened on my K-x.

It happened to me a couple of times when I was still on firmware 1.02 or 1.03. It has never happened to me on 1.04 or 1.05. What firmware are you using?

The "dirty contacts" comment earlier has me wondering if contacts on the mount got shorted out, as I was using an m42 lens that didn't fully cover them and it was wet enough out that I probably should have switched to a WR lens.

As long as it's only my mirror that starts to flop, I wont worry too much.
