S/N 4916745 purchased May 2014. Firmware 1.03

I have had the problem twice. First time was in the first couple of weeks after only 2 or 3 hundred frames. I can't remember the settings but I wasn't doing time lapse or anything odd and it had the supplied Pentax battery.

It happened again taking some butterfly photos on a warm sunny day this week.

TAv, AF.S - spot, Single Frame shooting. OEM battery 90% charged. Pentax FLU card with Wi Fi off (but that's another story)

Both times the flapping stopped while I was trying to remove the battery after switching off had no effect.

It's rather worrying and now I notice that there is a spot on the sensor that dust removal is not shifting (is there a connection?).
