Dynax 5 28100 af lenses picture problem


New Member
bought a dynax 5 with 28-100 af (minolta) lenses about a month ago. shot 3 rolls so far and have had to scrap about 20 pictures so far. all have the same "problem" on them.

(negative scans, but all images have almost identical black shapes on them, at the top and also at the bottom)
could it be connected to cold temperatures? one full roll i shot inside turned up fine but other series that ive shot outside usually start turning up these pictures at some point. isnt the operation temperature range for minolta cams at -20-+35 or something like that? (must have been like -5C for those pictures).
any ideas what the artifact on the picture is? maybe the mirror isn't moving up fast enough?
any thoughts on what it could be and what i should try to do to localize the problem is appreciated.
