K5 and vivitar DF-383-PEN

Questo sabato mi arriva la K5 in sostituzione dellla Kx. Posseggo già un flash vivitar DF - 383 che funziona veramente bene con la Kx. Adesso leggendo il forum qualcuno lamenta del mancato funzionamento tra questo flash e la k5 e così ho scritto alla vivitar, ecco la loro risposta:

Dear Ivan,
Thank you for contacting us with your query regarding the compatibility of the DF-383-PEN Flash with the Pentax K-5 Digital Camera.
We would like to inform that the Flash is compatible with all the Pentax SLR Camera. Hence, it is compatible with Pentax K-5 Camera. All Pentas have the pins in the hot shoe lined up in a certain way, and thus the flashes with the -PEN extensions have pins that line up the same way and that is how the flash and the camera communicate so that the flash will work with the camera's automatic settings.
However, you need to upgrade the Camera’s firmware in order to use the Flash with the Camera.
Please feel free to contact us for further assistance.
Thank you for using Sakar International, the leader in technology.
Sincerely,
Austin,
The Sakar International Team
Sakar

La domanda è la seguente qualcuno ha provato con il firmware 1.11???

Grazie.
