ahh excellent

2014/11/07 I assume that's yyyy/mm/dd?

Now to study every page of the manual, to figure out this beast.

Fantastic ergonomics, the k50 didn't fit my fingers when I tried it in-store, but the k3 I couldn't ask for more.
yes, it is yyyy/mm/dd, mine is 2014/10/20... don't forget to add yours to the serial number database here.
Enjoy your camera!!

Got my new K-3 today from B&H, ordered before Xmas, and it has 1.11 firmware. I didn't notice if there was a note about it in the box, I left all the packing at work. I will check tomorrow.

Edit: Note was in the box regarding the 1.11 firmware.

What does firmware version 1.11 do?

What will I gain by updating firmware 1.10 to 1.11 on my K-3? I haven't had the mirror problem and I'm not really concerned with exif data for flash. The Ricoh site is singularly unforthcoming about the other changes.

You guys in N America are lucky, that $699 converts to 445 and I just paid 635 for my shiny new K-3, after a 70 instant cashback and allowing for a Pentax 70 cashback. Bargain over here but not in comparison with the US. I wondered about importing it but after adding shipping, 20% VAT and import duty, it would have cost more than the 635

I have updated my firmware to 1.10. I didn't do 1.11 because it seemed minor. Today my camera locked up completely. I had to take the battery out and reinstall to unlock it. Will the upgrade help this. First time it has frozen in over a year.

It is unlikely that the 1.11 firmware would make a difference regarding lock-up tendency. One lock-up in a year indicates very little to worry about - normal operation.

That said, the K-3 has been shipping with the 1.11 firmware for many months now (including mine purchased back in November). Assuredly, 1.11 is better proven than 1.10; I'd update for the peace of mind alone.
