K-7 Green line woes are over?

Ok, A stick to the bee hive, wall

I am waiting an official price drop to purchase K-7, expecting this will happen in two months, but I won't wait more than end of the February. Until then I have not seen a green line problem reported for a long time, I guess Pentax did solved this problem, I hope I am right, just wondered anyone see a green line problem with last batches of Pentax sold before Christmas, say at the end of November and December?

My K-7 did not have the green line issue when I bought it several months after introduction.
I believe the firmware upgrades released solved most if not all problems with earlier models, since complains have stopped on this forum after the firmware was released.

The K-7 I bought in mid December (still firmware 1.00) has no green line problems..

What is an "official" price drop anyway?

Price drop by Pentax, MSRP drop (currently 1299) , not the street price drop (profit decrease) from shops. What's so funny that makes you laugh anyway?

Yep, it seems it was solved with firmware fix. I had green line problem with my first K-7, one from the first production batch, and green line couldn't be fixed with firmware, but Pentax Europe was fair and replaced it with a new camera.
