I'm aware that on the K-x you check firmware version by holding down the menu button while turning on the camera. I assume it's a similar process for the K-r.

I seriously doubt you'll have the latest firmware. Download the 1.11 firmware. There's a readme in the download that explains everything - how to check, how to update.
