I've been using the same Pentax AF540, beginning with a K10D up to my current K5II. From what I'd read elsewhere, the overexposure problem was only with Pentax flash. IIRC, people using Metz didn't seem to have the problem.
The issue is the same with Metz flash:

Thanks Lage, well I stand corrected then. But I do believe flash exposures are improved now after this new firmware upgrade, at least for the K5II, can't comment on the K5 specifically.

Interval shooting borked?

I'm not sure I've done interval shooting on the K-5 before (but I did on the K-10 or K-20). After the upgrade I tried some interval shooting to capture some cloud movement, planning to compile the frames into video later.

To my surprise the camera didn't interval correctly. Set to 10 second intervals, it would sometimes skip an interval, then shoot two frames in a row. AF is moved to the back button, so it wasn't trying / failing at AF during the run.

Anyone else?

Did some more comparisons between my K-5 that has 1.03 installed and the other one which has 1.14 installed. Absolutely NO DIFFERENCE to AF speed or accuracy on any of my lenses. if anyone is updating to 1.14 from a version earlier then 1.03 then you will of course get the improvements to lower light AF which came with 1.03
