Can I make a warranty claim in Europe for shutter blur?

The title says it all. Posts here seem to indicate that I can send my K-x straight away with no problem and I'll get a fixed camera back.

I've read reviews elsewhere which suggest that I'm stuck with this shot-ruiner. Anyone with experience here?

are you 100% its not user error (ie not waiting for the hand icon to light up with SR?)

or SR failure? (ie does the blur occur with SR turned off?)

Pretty sure. I'm waiting carefully but my shots still have a ghosting in the vertical direction (but nothing in the horizontal direction). They seem to all be at 1/80s though I'll check 1/100s during my next round of PP.

SR is definitely working as I'm getting really sharp shots at surprisingly low shutter speeds. I'll try turning it off and see what happens.

If turning off SR does fix my 1/80s problem, then what?
