Firmware upgrade coming for ALL Pentax Cameras!?

Someone mentioned this on the other site:

http://www.pentax.ru/ru/news/2571/news.html

Checked with the US Tech Support, they have no information. The press release is dated today (unless they meant Nov. 09 2013 )

The firmware numbers are indeed incremental (1.05 for K-5II, 1.15 for K-5 and so on, the list includes all the Pentax Digital Cameras released thus so far in all formats)

Any information on this ? For what its worth, I think its a firmware upgrade to change the start-up screen to show Ricoh-Imaging on everthying Pentax

Probably the announced new flashes supporting firmware.

Maybe they finally tested flash on a K-5 and found some issues 😊

The new firmware will add support for the HD limiteds and the new flashes.

Installed 1.04 on my K-01, nothing seems different. As far as I can tell it's just as Adam says, new flash and lens support.

Focusing seems faster on my K-01 but that's most likely my imagination.
