K-x mirror slap problem

OK, now I'm really disturbed.

Ordered the Pentax K-x with two kit lenses 18-55 & 55-300 for $653 seemed like a bargain after the nice review here. Now I see all this reports on the mirror slap problem in the 1/60-1/125 shutter speed range.

My kit is coming on friday and I think I'll return it unopened, and go with either the D5000 or the 500D both more expensive, especially the 500D. I don't want to be another beta tester for Pentax R&D.

Is there any sharp pictures taken handheld at those shutter speeds, SR ON/OFF?

The problem seems to be universal as more and more people that starts to closely check their pictures can see it.

I asked dpreview to test this and see if they can replicate it.
