He probably means the rear one. The rear LCD on my K100D has significant dust sprays coming up from the bottom corners at this point.

Happens to the best of 'em -- my 1Ds2 had some dust in a corner of the rear LCD as well, and that thing is generally a complete and utter tank. Just took cleaning and reseating the rear LCD cover and all is fine No clue if it came from the lens, but since it looks like it snuck in under the corner I am betting it actually did get in there...

Known Issue of the K10D

Reported/complained by some K10D users before. For details, see:-

There are individual reported cases from Germany too. It is said that it is not a sealing problem but rather coming from the inside of the cam, maybe sucked in by zooming/focussing with non sealed lenses or while lens changing. It might get visible behind the screen glass because it get's there by cohesion through static charge of the LCD. Some report that Pentax cleaned it, nevertheless some claim that a seal has been exchanged at service.
