Perhaps it fixes some of the reported focus problems caused by V1.10?

So unless you are spending the money for the GPS unit there's still no point in installing it. I'll stick with 1.03 and not fix what ain't (already) broken.

(But probably it will just fix a GPS accessory bug, one that nobody has experienced yet because they haven't sold any GPS accessories. What, me cynical?)
Heh, called it.

Don't worry, firmware 1.12 will be along shortly, and the only change in that one will be to change the MAKE field in EXIF to "RICOH" -- breaking all the raw converters that rely on that to identify the correct camera profile to use.

I thought it would be something like this. A bugfix on newly developed functionality. I'm not surprised at all.

Haven't checked. However, I wouldn't expect it to obtain these data at all. I do not have any gps gear attached, so unless the software works now as such a device, the camera has no clue about my whereabouts, does it?
