Done. I have no need of it at this stage, but I'm obsessive.

Yes, I have the 70 to 210 on order so this is very helpful. Thanks.

I'm afraid mines will ask for a D-FA 70-210 (message asking for D-FA 70-210, on the back LCD at camera startup), if I update them.

Then you haven’t kept them under proper control. Whingeing kids...

My K1s are not aware of the new Pentax lens, because none is connected like my phone is. Imagine cameras would be connected and photographers would get pop up ads about new lenses on the back LCD when switching on the camera... I'm glad cameras aren't connected ! [honestly, I'm getting fed up with all the ads that keep cluttering my phone, I disable all possible settings, but someone they manage to switch that on again after a while.., I got rid of TV to elminate unsolicited ads, but now what was terrible on TV comes back to cripple web content, that's terrible].

Rather like Ogden Nash’s little rhyme:-

A billboard lovelier than a tree.
Indeed, until all billboards fall
I’ll never see a tree at all!

Nope. 30th test shot after the update and it went black again until I reset it with live view and back to OVF.

Bad, bad camera! It should remember that you already own a D-FA70-200. So when already playing NHL, why should it cry for AHL?

That's why I just did my update. Now I feel I must have one of these at some point to keep my camera happy.
