I can't believe Pentax still has a Mirror Flop Issue..
8 months ago

As I read through some of the threads here I could not help but notice that the dreaded "Mirror Flop Issue" is still plaguing Pentax cameras.

My first encounter with this issue is documented here.

To think that Pentax has not been able to put a stop to this after all this time is absolutely amazing. I find it incredibly hard to believe they have not isolated the problem and made changes to prevent it from happening on newer camera models.

I am so thankful that my K5 IIs has never suffered from this issue.. but the issue first appeared in 2011.  It's now 2014 and it keeps popping up.  Someone at Pentax is really dropping the ball on R&D.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
