Hi,

Glad to hear that your camera is up and running. Yes, I share your concern about the shutter box motor in the K5 II series of cameras. I am hypothesizing that the type of motor being used by these newer models is different from the ones found in legacy K5's. This may in part being due to the 7 shots per second capability in the mark II's which is due to a faster motor assembly....................Jim

We Pentax users are eternally hopeful, interpreting the stars, reading tea leaves in a cup, listening to the sounds of the wind, repeating rumors of rumors, anything that might suggest that we have finally found our way to the Holy Grail. Only for Pentax users, the Holy Grail is simply a camera and lens that actually functions as it is intended to. Unequivocal devotion, thy name is Pentaxian!

I hope you are right.
