New K-5 firmware on the way?

A dpreview member by the name of newmikey pointed-out that Pentax UK has a link to a Firmware K-5 v1.12 on their site.
No clue what this entails though I hope they added the low shutter metering issue in manual mode.

While I'm not holding my breath since I don't think it's going to happen after all these years, I too would welcome that option.

Video autofocus
Not gonna happen, and not very useful anyways. Ask anyone with a D7000, the autofocus is crap; noisy, slow and inaccurate. Manual video controls and more framerate options on the other hand; now that would put the K-5 into the standing of awesome video machine, like it should be...

At this point in the life cycle of the K5--- either a bug fix, or code for some new features they are planning for the nex gen camera that they want to validate.

I totaly agree with that. Iso control & manual setup of video parameters could be really nice.
