I thought of this too. Since the light produced by the flash decreases by distance, the AF distance needs to be calculated to get the correct flash output. I haven't done any thorough testing but i recall some quick manual focus tests indicated that this was not the issue.

I've been in contact with Ricoh/Pentax technical support. They asked me to send some example photos with the error (with preserved exif data), which I did. I have not yet heard anything back, but I'll give them another couple of weeks...

Edit: There are no info in the EXIF of flash intensity or focus distance, from what I can dig out.

I'd like to hear what Ricoh have to say....
