It's the Q lens compatibility update. So you can mount the Q lens using an upcoming $500 adapter and voila! A pinhole camera!

Do I sound desperate for the ff fix?

I looked at the Japan site and found the firmware file: fwdc209b.bin

On the USA site the file is fwdc208b.bin

The description on the Japan site:

Changes to V1.10
•Correspond to GPS unit [O-GPS1]
*If the collaboration model is updated with this software, original start-up screen is deleted and it is changed to standard start-up screen.

*Contents of [Version 1.01] will be also updated.

Changes to V1.01
•Compatible with SDXC memory card.
* Transfer rate is not compatible with UHS speed class.

•All ISO sensitivity setting can be used on Bulb mode.
•Improved functional sequence for Contrast AF and improved total speed until in focus.

Does it hurt if you get the Japanese firmware for a USA body?

Did you found this file name in description or as file itself? it is known that description differs from real file (at least for firmware 1.10 update).

The link as listed does get you to the list of UK firmware, but it is the link to the firmware itself that does not work. Tried Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 8 and neither worked.

It sure is odd that Pentax USA still only offers firmware 1.01. They're about to be 2 firmware versions behind.

The file names are in the install instructions. I did not actually download to see what the name would be after.

I found it odd that the description (Japan) refers to improved AF while the USA description only refers to added support for SDXC cards.

Does that mean the FF under tungsten is gone?

Thanks for the assurance.
