K3 Crazy Mirror Sickness (Mirror Flapping Lockup) - Report Yours Here!

Hi guys. I didn't know this topic exists. Happened to me too. I thought it was just a glitch or something.
I was doing a time lapse a couple of days ago on the balcony. The angle of the camera was slightly downwards.
After like 30 mins or so the camera just went crazy with the mirror flapping. I tried to pull out the battery as quickly as possible but as soon as I turned the camera around to reach the battery socket the flapping stopped. So maybe it has something to do with the gyroscope.

I bought the camera early November 2013.
FW: v1.03
Mode: Manual
Battery: 1 in unit, no grip.
First occurrence for me.

Pentax K-3 + Pentax K-Adapter / M42

Hey guys,

i'm new here. I just received my lovely brand new Pentax K-3 yesterday. I currently live in Germany and I'm quite lucky to get one piece from the first shipment from Pentax. Btw there is no Pentax K-3 to choose when registering!
Anyway, I also bought the original Pentax K-Adapter for M42 lenses from I would have a question about it. It's really easy to get it on and off with a pen but is it suppose to be slightly loose? I can really slightly move the adapter with my fingers. I didn't try to put any M42 lense on thought. Maybe with a lens on it's gonna be more firm.

Can someone confirm this or just tell me how it is with the adapter. Is it suppose to be really tight or is it normal that it's slightly loose?
