New Firmware Released

Looks like many cameras are getting a firmware update available on April 15 2021 which includes:

"Optimized focus operation for new lenses HD PENTAX-FA 31 mm F1.8 Limited, HD PENTAX-FA 43 mm F1.9 Limited, HD PENTAX-FA 77 mm F1.8 Limited lenses and smc PENTAX-FA 31mm F1.8AL limited, smc PENTAX-FA 43mm F1.9AL limited and smc PENTAX-FA 77mm F1.8AL limited lenses."

RICOH IMAGING

PENTAX K-1 FIRMWARE UPDATE VERSION (1.54)
PENTAX K-1 Mark II FIRMWARE UPDATE VERSION (1.20)
PENTAX KP FIRMWARE UPDATE VERSION (1.30)
PENTAX K-70 FIRMWARE UPDATE VERSION (1.12)
PENTAX K-3 II FIRMWARE UPDATE VERSION (1.11)

I wonder if we will see the K-3 III firmware added soon too.

My K3 isn’t supported.
The upgrade omens are supporting the drool factor of a new K3III

Great. Thanks. The list of updated firmware is a bit longer, and include the K-3 for example.

It appears the ks2 isn't supported even though it was released long after the k3. Last version is for kaf4 lenses.

They still update the FW of my yellow K-01! Nice!
There was a time when I appreciated it, for the focus-peaking in dark conditions and f1.4 lenses.
But then I got my hands on the K-70. Now nobody wants the 01. Even my children prefer the OVF. 100% infected.

I'll be curious to see whether I can detect a difference focussing before and after upgrade with my FA limiteds on the K-3 II. Will try the FA77 wide open...

"Optimized focus" for my old FA Ltds can't be a bad thing

Thanks for the heads-up, @FozzFoster!

Good to know my cameras were already as stable as Ricoh could make them
