Pentax Japan has just announced two new firmware updates for the Pentax Q and Q10 cameras. These updates add support for the recently-announced 07 body cap lens and they also include the latest minor bug fixes. We will soon be posting a hands-on video with the 07 lens for current users of the Q system.
