Wow! As a K-3 owner, I am impressed! Thank you Ricoh! This is a very positive development. It also, IMHO, hints that future lenses (ie the new D-FA primes) are likely to be KAF4...

p.s.: Take that everyone that said it was a hardware issue!

Great news !!! Thanks to Ricoh/Pentax for this update. The KAF4 lenses look they might be the " new black." Glad I will be able to use them long into the future. Very much appreciated.


PS. A big thank you also to @VoiceOfReason for starting the petition. I feel it had some bearing on this great outcome.

2nd hand K-3's have just become more valuable.
