Pentax K-01 & 40mm LTD

hi everyone. i'm considering a k-01 and a 40mm ltd. im taking the step up from the point and shoots. i was wondering would i need to download the new firmware for the k-01 and 40mm ltd? or do they usually ship with the latest firmware for both the lens and the k-01. i would most probably get the k-01 body alone and then purchase a 40mm ltd.

thank you

No, you don't need to upgrade your firmware unless you really want to. Also, there are no lens firmwares for the K-01.

Because the K-01 has been discontinued, I don't think any of them will come pre-loaded with the latest firmware. The latest update is found here:

Q-lenses have upgradable firmware, and new versions hereof come out occasionally.

So far, at least, K-mounts do not.

That is one fine combination, K-01 with DA40mmLtd.

Upgrade the firmware, that makes the AF for the camera faster and enjoy your new toy.
