K-5 showing signs of mirror double flop issue again…

So it’s only been a few days since getting the K-5 back from a 2 month service call, but the camera is starting to show signs of the double mirror flop issue again. The issue is best described on this PentaxForums.com thread.

Here is a short video of the camera in action:

As I’ll be attending a convention tomorrow, I wanted to take the camera. The issue doesn’t seem very bad at the moment, but I’m sure it will only get worse with time. So I’m uncertain if I should bother taking the camera or not. If I don’t, I would probably just stick to taking photos with the K-7 rather than video. Maybe I should switch the K-5 to video duty? ugh…
