New K-5 From J&R

I just picked up a new K-5 from J&R, and it arrived on Friday afternoon. Just learning the workings of the camera, but I'm curious if I have one from an older batch of K-5's as the firmware version is still on 1.01. My serial number is 4029027. Thoughts? My only concern is for some of the earlier production issues that I've read about here and on other forums.

Thanks in advance!

I would think any K5 at this time and date would be just fine especially with the 4XXXX series S/N. I believe all K5 now are shipped with FW 1.01

I ran a PEF file through PhotoMe and it looks like the camera was manufactured in Mid-April so things should be good. Wasn't sure about the 1.01 firmware as some other manufacturers are pretty good about getting their latest firmware on cameras going out the door.

I appreciate the response! Time to put the camera through its paces and make sure all is well in my environments!
