I have tried two different SD cards, has it been your experience that this might be a problem?

My K10D is sick

So every once in a while, since my K10D was new, it would take an all green picture. I would turn it off and turn it on and everything would be ok. Now it seems to happen every other time I turn on the camera, and takes about 10 times to make it stop doing it. Pictures of the problem may be found here: Flickr: posingpossum's Photostream (images IMGP2050 and 2068..(most of them look like 2050, 2058 was the first time it came out with an image.

I guess I am going to have to send it in. I think it should be covered by warranty, but I have to find my paperwork. What is the turn around time for repairs? Does anyone with experience have advise on handling this, like the dos and don'ts of handling pentax customer service? Sending one of the most expensive things I own off makes me pretty nervous.

Thanks for any help

I just purchased my 10D and and have been having an incredible time with it. A friend of mine gave me a Sigma 400mm f5.4 lens autofocus lens with a Minolta mount. I would love to adapt it to the k10d. I know there is an issue with distance to the sensor and losing the ability to focus on infinity when adapting some lenses to some bodies. I am having trouble laying my hands on this information.

Some stores don't really want you to purchase Pentax DSLRs.

My experience is unfortunately somewhat similar.

My local store claimed Pentax had stopped sending them cameras 3 weeks before Christmas and they didn't expect any more stock until a new model came out. They also expressed reservations about the health of Pentax. Based on that, they tried to steer me to Canon and/or Nikon. I still have never handled a K10D, nobody within 50 miles of me carries one, but one is on order and willl be here Tuesday.

Overall, it was not a rude experience, just unfortunate.
