Q firmware updates

I should be happy user of Pentax Q next week (thanks to the Users posting links about sale prices in the UK on this Forum). First I want to upgrade the firmware. I saw that quite many versions were released. Should I do the body firmware update step by step, or just update to v 1.12?

Best regards,

v1.12 contains all the pieces from every other update. Do v1.12 and you will be happy.
Congratulations on the camera.

Hi Piotrek K,

If I were to get a new original Q at this point, I'd shoot it a bit first, then update both the body and lens firmware, just to appreciate how much they've done with especially speeding up the AF.

Though you lose all your settings when updating so I would start with it.
