645D firmware 1.30 with SR support

Hello,

Just FTR, Pentax released few days ago a new firmware (v1.30) with support for in-lens stabilization. A Custom Function was added in the menu (though, they don't say what it does - the SR On/Off button is on the lens).
That makes the 645D+90mm lens the only stabilized medium format solution, right?

I just updated to firmware 1.30. It adds an entry to the end of the Custom menu. It appears as "37. Shake Reduction Options". There are two selections: 1) Activates SR at the moment of capture only (uses less power). 2) Activates SR while pressing the shutter release button halfway (uses more power).

Sorry, I could not find the lens that has stabilization for my 645D. Too early in the morning ??

Thank you for the link, Kunzite. I will keep my eyes and ears open for this macro lens. But, for that kind of money (~$4,800 USD), I highly doubt that I will buy one myself.

No problem.
DMF is out of my reach, so I can simply watch what's happening regardless of the prices
