Well, I can confirm that the Eye-Fi cards work on both K-5 and Q Classic. I set them both up on the latest firmware, but neither showed any contextual menus. I set the Eye-Fi using it's own software and happily swap the card between all cameras (even the ol' K10D) with no worries at all. In fact, I think that is one of the key conveniences of the card; it is NOT camera dependant and for that reason I'd actually rather not have interfacing firmware on the camera. Although a little tricky to set up I followed the instructions carefully and it works like a charm on my Windows 7 notebook, my ancient Android tablet (pre Icecream Sandwich) as well as my up to the minute Android phone. I know it works on the girlfriend's Mac as well. I just swap the card between cameras and toggle the devices and the darned thing just works. I love it, and there is a lot to love for what it is; just so long as no-one expects it to be a replacement for tethering, which it isn't.

Do you have to reformat the card when you exchange it between cameras?
