K10D - image is consistently rotated?

I have a K10D and I've noticed a consistent problem with my photos. No matter how carefully i line up horizontal or vertical edges in the frame with the edges in the viewfinder, my photos come out slightly rotated with the right side lower than the left. It's easy enough to fix this in lightroom, but it's a drag to have to do it every time I import photos.

At first i thought that maybe it was just me, pulling down a little on the right side of the camera when i press the shutter button, but it happens on tripod and tabletop shots as well.

is there a way i can compensate for this in the camera (couldn't find anything in the menus). My guess is that it's a viewfinder alignment issue. it seems unlikely that the sensor would be tilted, but i could imagine something in the viewfinder system (either a mirror or the viewfinder frame) ever so slightly out of skew.

any thoughts?
