Is it normal for my K7 shutter button to reset slowly?

Hi,

Not sure if this is how my K7 has always been, but I just noticed that when after I press the shutter button, it lags coming back up to the resting position. While handling the camera just now, it seemed that it took a lot longer than usual for the button to return so I fired off a bunch of shots and even turned the camera off just to press and release the button numerous times. It seems a bit better, now, after having done that, but still slow. I am uploading a video I took of the button to youtube and will link it here.

For those of you with a K7, is your camera doing the same thing or might my camera have a weak or faulty spring?

Idem. Agree that it looks like a sticky button. It is not normal and you should get it fixed if a simple cleaning of the button with a wipe cannot help.

I have the extended warranty from Pentax, I'm just afraid it will take a month to get it back.
