well my K-5 II is a lemon....went to shoot zombie walk today and took ~350 shots.

All looks fine in camera LCD but when imported to LR around 30 images have half white bar, I think the DNG files are corrupted and the embedded image is fine.

I thought it might be the SD card but I took ~90 shots in burst with another SD card and around 10% of it are corrupted too.

Thankfully I didn't lose the best shots, but still really disappointed at Pentax QC

I'm missing your statement that you have used the same SD card(s) in your K-5 without problems.

Also you are using the latest firmware and you have formatted the SD card(s) in your K-5 II - right?

If so, you should exchange your K-5 II to get a better one.
