K5IIs: green line in images

I've just taken delivery of a new K5IIs from SRS, and started to find my way around the controls. In principle I like it, but... first serious try-out today, at Lyme Regis, and I noticed that most (not all) of the images have a vertical green line close to the right border, as in the one below (shooting in RAW and converting using Elements, but the line is present in close-up on the camera screen). Checking back, it's in most of my earlier (indoor) shots too - so not a cold weather aberration. I'm guessing there's a fault somewhere rather than my ineptitude in setting the camera up...



K5IIs & ME Super with FA24-90, DA17-70, DA55-300, misc old primes; Fuji X20.

SRS will most likely replace with very little hassle... They're pretty good like that by all accounts.

As all of the above, send her back.

Thanks everyone. K5 posted to SRS this morning - they have agreed to send me a new one. At least the wet and slushy weather is making it easier to bear (and I've still got the K20).
