Pentax will replace my k5 sensor.
2

So after some time emailing back and forward with Pentax (not the support centre) they have told me to send the camera in for repairs.
The repair will consist of a sensor replacement, seems silly to me as a firmware fix to load the pixel mapping data would solve the problem and a new sensor could just mean more/less stuck pixels in different places.
Anyway I will be notified when they have a sensor in stock and reserved so I can send it away.
I did ask since they are replacing the sensor if they could put one in one without an AA filter, I figured it was worth a try ;).
Now I just have to figure out how to be without my k5 when the repairs are being done, I do have a gx10 the but the high iso isn't so good, same with my gf1.  If I had the cash I would grab a k30 for the current price in the uk (around £310) but sadly can't afford it and while I could try sell the gx10 or gf1 to fun it I would rather give them to my son than for the little money the body's only would fetch.
