Pentax investigates K-5 DSLR sensor ‘contamination’
Pentax Japan has confirmed that its factory has launched an urgent investigation into a report that ‘foreign matter’ has led to ‘dirty’ imaging sensors on its K-5 DSLR.
Amateur Photographer was contacted by a photographer from Norwich who said he is worried having bought a K-5 earlier this month.
He said he believes that ‘foreign matter' lies under the AA filter and ‘cannot be cleaned off’.
In response a spokesman for the factory told us: ‘A report concerning contamination on a K-5 sensor has been brought to our attention.
‘We are investigating this as a matter of urgency.’
