Double shutter actuation on K-50...

While taking some goodbye pictures with my K-50 (I'm about to send it on a warranty repair about the aperture actuator - see @pathdoc; I'm sending it now...) and it seems to have developed another issue...

It will click the shutter twice, when I press the shutter button. It happened for about about ten shots, and then I can't reproduce it to take an audio file or video so you can hear the issue. Not in continuous shooting, only one picture per shutter button press, also when the flash was on the flash double flashed.

Thanks for any help...

Are you sure it is just the camera doing doubles?

Could be related to the aperture issue. I'd mention it to the shop.

Yes, this. So much. Tell them everything that's gone wrong in the order it's happened. Best of luck.
