Sorry, I don't understand the comment...are you saying that v1.42 firmware is unstable?
If so, can you please provide details?

Cheers,
Terry

Corrected – Unstable performance may rarely occur in firmware version 1.41.

Quote underwhelming if that's all they are adding. Would be cool to see if they are working on some cool feature updates, comparable to mirrorless ones

For a "moribund" brand, I am very satisfied about Pentax behaviour.. Thank you Pentax...

Not so bad compared to other brands:
Shadow Improvement of Photographic Dynamic Range versus ISO Setting

Well, they must have thought it significant enough to release it. At least it shows continued support for the product. Thanks to Ricoh/Pentax.

Wow.

You wouldn't think it was so underwhelming if you were experiencing instabilities using the previous firmware. I'm sure there will be some happy users. (I'm not experiencing any problems, but just saying...)
