Which makes sense if its sub assembly issue rather than camera assembly.

38259xx : YES

Nice string of pearls, nearly dead center...

(but fortunately no dust after 1 1/2 months of use and frequent lens changes)

Sadly my k5 has them too, but only visible when cranking up the levels at f22 and up.

Re: Post your serial number (Dust stains - affected K5)

Yes, I just found stains while shooting at f22.

My serial number is: 3890279

I sent it back to Amazon along with a description of the problem.

I miss the camera and plan to buy it again once the issue is cleared up.
