You sure about that? My Q7 displays the firmware version by navigating to the "wrench" Menu, option 4, then opening the "Firmware Info/Options" dialog. It shows "Camera Ver: 1.01" installed. My 08 lens seems to work just fine.


Cheers.. M

Oh, I forgot it was in the menu...

I suspect only the in-camera lens corrections require a specific firmware version. Pentax mentions the 08 lens in the release notes for version 1.14.
