The V1.01 K-5II firmware was released on 17th January, 2 weeks later we have another version? Aren't they working hard?

Did you reset your camera after upgrading your firmware? Usually a good idea to do this.

Going to ask them that at our CP+ interview. Pretty sure this firmware does nothing more than fix the CDAF performance for the 560mm though

manual video control on the k-5?? i guess we'll never see it... K01 does it, it´s so hard to put it on the k5. Time to abandon ship...

Do you all recalibrate lenses after a firmware upgrade?

Don't think so.

Manual video controls please. DSLR cameras as video shooting platform become more and more important. Pentax k-5 is missing just manual controls to be perfect for it.

Someone repost it in japanese or something

I keep hoping that Pentax will include a timer for Bulb mode as a FW upgrade. Anyone tried bulb mode post FW upgrade (I assume no change else this would be listed).
