Firmware Update

Are there any benefits to updating the firmware in my K3ii from 10 to 12? I'm not purchasing any new lenses anytime soon.

1.10 to 1.12 includes the updates in 1.11 which involved improved performance using all three FA limited lenses in HD and SMC forms. 1.12 added 16-50 PLM updates.

The normal “improved stability” clause is only on 1.10 so unless you need support for those lenses it’s unclear if there’s any benefit in updating it otherwise.
