Pentax K-5 v1.10 Firmware

I'm about to receive my K5 so i went to Pentax.co.uk to download the lastest firmware, and for my surprise i've found a new version. A v1.10 instead of 1.03 downloaded it and it seems the real thing (the readme file say that it is an upgrade of 1.03).

Pentax UK Download Web Site

Direct Windows and Mac links.

I just did not found a list with new features. This news also aplies for Pentax k-r.

I went ahead and downloaded it, but I always like to wait for someone else to be the guinea pig and try it out before I install it. I'm sure it won't be long now.

I'm crossing my fingers to FF and BF issues are totally solved and maybe support for tethering (besides PK_Tether).

I am still at work, but I am so curious now.
Is it just the added GPS stuff, or did something else under the hood change as well?

Does your camera show now FW version 1.10? So, is this update real? :-)

Yes it is real and I found a GPS menu as an extra.

Choose between
- e-compass
- simple navigation
- startracker

- kalibration
- time position
- automatic time sync on/off

Did not find other changes so far.

Now it's just waiting a few hours to receive my k5 and then patch it with the latest firmware.

It would be nice to see in a future update some new improvements to movie mode.
