It is great to see this level of support, even for a discontinued model. Well done, Pentax!

Fantastic - makes me glad to be a proud owner of a white and a yellow K-01.

Glad I didn't load 1.02, so I don't need 1.03 to fix it.
Will wait for 1.04, if there is one, to see if it offers anything good.

I'm glad we're getting a firmware update; I'll be updating both my K-01 bodies today. That said, I'd REALLY love to see Pentax release a firmware update that "unlocks" faster continuous burst shooting in RAW mode. All the information at our disposal suggests the K-01 can handle shooting faster than 1FPS in RAW mode. I can accept only being able to shoot at 6FPS in JPEG, but giving us at least 3FPS in RAW would be VERY nice.

I've only had my K-01 for two weeks, and the one problem it had was that it absolutely would not focus correctly with my Tamron SP 24-135. All other lenses were OK. I applied the new firmware this morning, and voila! the Tamron focuses great!

Thanks Pentax

Great! Now if only they can make the green button work more easily with manual lenses.

Hmm, installed firmware 1.03.
Tried movie mode with DA 18-55 - still no AF.
Wasn't this the upgrade?
