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.

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.
