However there is still NO list of changes in the package -- at least not in the Mac version. The Read Me file in the folder only describes the upgrade procedures.

Odd? Elsewhere? Wait: That's it?

[Changes to V1.01]
• NEW: Compatibility with SDXC memory cards

http://www.sdcard.org/developers/tech/sdxc/

Up to 2TB and 104MB per second now, with a road map to 300MB per second? Sounds great. Maybe Pentax really had a reason to select SD over CF.

SDXC - SD Association

Well not all SDXC cards or functions are supported. On the German site it says that SDXC up to 64 Gb can be used now.

AFAIK, all SDXC cards currently available are slower than the fastest SDHC cards. The only benefit is bigger ones that cost a lot

Has anyone heard of, or personally encountered, any problems with their cameras after installing this firmware upgrade?

I hate to be an early adopter of new firmware, having been burned in the past doing so.

I can't say if it is new firmware related, but the rear dial doesn't behave as precisely as it did before I updated. It could be a wonky knob. However, I don't think it is possible to downgrade in order to check it out.
