K-3 Mark III firmware update

Changes from V2.10 to V2.11
Improved stability for general performance.
* When this update is done, the contents of version 2.10 and earlier will be also updated.
* When this update is done, you will not be able to restore back to version 2.10 or earlier.

See Support | RICOH IMAGING

Cheers,
Terry

Since the last update was not very long ago, I would suspect that would be part of it. I don't have the lens, but hopefully it does fix it.

The problem is that the the focus is changing a lot from infinity to nearest focus and back to infinity again when I am zooming. It mostly change focus around 35mm. But it doesn't always do this. And never with a K50. This has recently started and it is still happening with 2.11.

I keep hoping that one of these updates will allow the DA560 to use all of the focus points. Oh well, maybe the next one...

Strange behavior, mine doesn't do that. The focus issue I was having has been cleared up with the 2.11 firmware update.

It doesn't allow the edge points to be used. The K-3 III goes into "AF Restriction" mode which only allows the 65 AF points in the large center grid to be used.

There is a list on page 117 of the user manual detailing which lenses have autofocus point restrictions on the K3-III. The DA560 is one of them.
