Will be watching to see what other's report about this update. My K-3 has been a rock of reliability and I have no immediate
plans for the DFA50*, so won't update unless something else is hidden in the latest firmware

Wonder why the K-3ii isn't also getting the update... timing? not requiring the same optimization for DFA50*?

K1II & K3II do not require firmware up.

That is strange. When an update includes a new lens models, it is to provide lens correction and an updated lens lookup table at minimum. The K-1II does not surprise me. The K-3II on the other hand...

The HD Pentax-D FA★ 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW is a KAF4 lens (= with an electromagnetic diaphragm control system). The K-5, K-5 II and K-5 IIs don't work with such lenses.

Concerning the K-1 Mark II, I could agree with you: at the time of its announcement pre-series copies of the HD Pentax-D FA★ 50mm f/1.4 SDM AW were in the hands of testers so one could imagine that the K-1 Mark II's firmware includes the appropriate code lines.

Concerning the K-3 II, I don't buy that.

I am convinced that further D FA★ 50mm-related firmware updates will soon be published: K-1 Mark II possibly, K-3 II definitely, may be K-S1, K-S2 and K-70 too.

Having never updated firmware on my cameras, can I just update my K1 for this firmware version without having gone through the previous updates? I am assuming this is a cumulative update rather than incremental? Thanks!
