K-5 lens correction only for DA*?

Is lens correction in K-5 only for DA* lenses?
Can we expect firmware update with lens correction for more lenses?

no, from what I have read it also supports lens corrections for DA, DA*, FA and FA* series lenses, right out of the box.

No, its DA, DA* and DFA and FA limiteds only! No normal FA or FA* But the FA* lenses have little CA anyway!

K-5, K-7, K-r and K-x all do DA, DA Limiteds, DA Stars, DA L, D FA and FA Limiteds.
However, the firmware in the K-5 and K-r only have pre-production / beta status, so it is not finished yet.
