Hmmm . . . links but no files yet, it appears?

Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. Focus fix. PLEEEEEEEASE, focus fix. Oh yeah, while I'm at it I'll put in a request for a bounce flash fix too.

(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?)

It's the same, but it feeds into the owners of the K5 Silver's feeling of superiority over the rest of us.

Yeah, where the heck is our exclusive VIP lounge???

I assume the silver one has a different product code or something and is therefore listed separately despite being internally identical.

Are we 100% sure that installing the silver firmware on a black body won't turn it into a silver body? I might give it a try just in case

Beware -- if you do that, you won't be able to install the future firmware update that turns your K-5 into a 645D, because there's no silver 645D.

I actually prefer the black one as well (though I haven't seen a silver one in person, so perhaps that might change things if I did).

It definitively would change things, because Silver is magic

K-7 1.11 firmware?! ... have had it for long time now!

"Bonjour",

Maybe I missed an episode or something ... when I purchased my used K-7 a few months ago, I immediately installed the 1.11 firmware, since this K-7 had not been updated.

Is this a "newer" version of the previous 1.11 K-7 firmware?

(Also, I was able to download the files off the UK Pentax link which was cited.)

Thanks for any assistance ... "Salut et bonne journée", Jean

No, it is not a newer 1.11 for K-7, it is 1.11 for the K-5.
