I might try blowing the SD card slot out with air.

Upgraded all 4 Qs to v1.12 & AF seems to be the same as v1.11 & everything works the way it should. Plus the tone expansion now works, so good to go, I guess.

I had 1.11 on my Q so I got the AF upgrade and the tone expansion downgrade. The 1.12 fixes everything. Good to go.

So I've updated to 1.12. What version should my 01 & 02 lenses be on?

I noticed the Japan site actually had wrong firmware for one of the lenses (they had the same file for both) when I got it a couple of weeks ago. Had to go to the USA site to get correct version...

Oh, dear. It appeared to go alright but now the Q won't power up. When I press the power button, I hear a click, the screen lights up very dimly, and then it shuts down - and that's it. Yes, the battery was fully charged and the bin software was on a freshly formatted SD card.
Pentax Australia have advised that my camera has been returned to Japan for repair.

Any update on your Q? Everyone still happy with v1.12? Now that v1.13 is out that handles the 07 lens it may be time for me to upgrade from v1.11 since you guys have beta tested it and all

I think we're still messing with it. I'm trying (with challenges) to do a video with my K-01.

Just picked up my Q from the post office - I'm almost afraid to open the box......

.... it works.

It still has the V1.12 software and I'm a bit scared of updating!

I'd have to give CR Kennedy (Pentax Australia) a thumbs up on this. It appears they have covered the cost of repair including shipping it to Japan and also back to me. I've only been out of pocket for the shipping to CRK for the repair.

This is my third dealing with CRK in recent years (they repaired my K-7 for free this year even though it was well and truly out of warranty). I am very happy with them and their service. Thank you CRK!
