Yes. I have the same question. I updated the firmware but I can't read v1.02.21.10 anywhere...

This was already discussed; use an EXIF viewer and you'll see.
Even without updating, you can use a hex viewer to take a look at the .bin file; the internal version is at the beginning, just before the "Copyright..." text.
And yes, the Pentax Japan firmware is 1.02.21.10.

I loaded the exif reader on firefox or as a stand alone software and only got - # Camera Make = PENTAX
# Camera Model = PENTAX K-5
# Picture Orientation = normal (1)
# X-Resolution = 300/1 ===> 300
# Y-Resolution = 300/1 ===> 300
# X/Y-Resolution Unit = inch (2)
# Software / Firmware Version = K-5 Ver 1.02
# Last Modified Date/Time = 2011:01:20 12:38:07
# Artist = Ofer-Hadas
# Y/Cb/Cr Positioning (Subsampling) = co-sited / datum point (2)
# Copyright Owner = Ofer-Hadas

Use a proper Exif reader, like PhotoME.
