Downgrade Firmware

After my upgrade to 1.02 I have my doubts about AF-C focus. So I want to check it in version 1.01. Can I downgrade the firmware in the same way as an upgrade ?
Thanks

Thanks for your quick reply but what does "Yleenä ei" means ?

I think it is supposed to be Yleensä ei, which means generally not.

I see no reason why not,both 1.01 and 1.02 are available for download from the pentax site...just do it that same way as upgrading...after all its just a operating system

As far as I know, it's not that easy: the camera checks the firmware version and does not let you downgrade back to an earlier firmware. At least, that's how it worked on previous Pentax DSLRs.... Didn't check with the K-5 so it's always worth a try, though.

Minun mielestäni ei onnistu vanan ajaminen uuden tilalle. Yleensä ei ole tarvetta tällaisee. Voi olla että joutuu menemään huoltoon tämänjälkeen palauttamaan uudelleen toimintakuntoiseksi ja se maksaa.

You are correct. Just a different spelling due to local "accent".

I have not tested it yet, but last weekend with firmware 1.02 I had a lot of pictures out of focus even static objects. With firmware 1.01 I was very satisfied with the af-c performance of the k5. I made some af-c test pics see (HOME).
The planning is to make some soccer pics this weekend I will let you know about the af-c performance.

AF-C focus worked for you in v1.00 or v1.01? It acts more like M focus for me, snapping the shutter on ridiculously out-of-focus shots numerous times.
