What's the latest on the K7 Veritcal Line issue.


Been away for a while.

In March of this year, I finally upgraded from my trusty K10D to a K7 for an upcoming trip we had planned.

Took the trip and have been going through the photos. Last night, I first noticed the vertical line thing in some of my photos.

Checked the net and saw where this has been a problem for some cameras under certain conditions. Haven't seen a lot of recent post though.

So I would like to know if there has been any resolution to this issue. Is there a firmware fix or should I send the camera to Pentax for repair?
