K-r Rear Wheel Issues
Jan 30, 2011

Just wondering if anyone else experiences this with their K-r.

When I spin the wheel to the right (i.e. counter clockwise when looking down) everything seems to work fine (i.e. the shutter speed gets quicker, apature stops down, playback picture zooms in). When I spin the wheel to the left sometimes the camera responds with the opposite action (i.e. every now and then the shutter speed gets quicker rather than slower, the apature stops down rather than up, playback picture zooms in rather than out).

This is a real example (I just did this). Starting at 1/1000 it goes to 1/800 then jumps to 1/2000.

Sounds like I might have to send it in :-(.
