I don't know a whole lot about the mirror slap issue as far as if it was tied to a certain batch or what, but I haven't had a single issue with mine after about 5000 shots.

I did have one scare.... I pulled the camera out of my bag after a day or so, and the first time I pressed the shutter it fired off in rapid succession.... Uh oh.... Turns out it was still on high speed continuous from the day before. Big relief.

And I don't know if anyone ever reported the same for the K-5, but the last few months I had mine there were a few times I pressed the shutter and it actuated 4-5 times. With a slight delay between the first and the following ones. Happened maybe 5 times overall. One camera I have that has experienced no mirror slap at all is my K-01. Not sure why as I have abused it....... Oh wait.
