K50 firmware upgrade

Is it worth the time and hassle to upgrade the k-50's firmware? Is there any real advantage? I'm a little reluctant to mess with the software that makes the thing work.

In the K-50's case, all the updates have been related to compatibility with lenses and flashes. So, unless you got the new teleconverter or one of the new flashes, there's no real need to update.
