Firmware update.

Just updated my K5 to firmware update 1.12 and lost the color changing ability on the LCD. Anyone have this problem?

Do you mean changing the background color on the display?
Curious.. though no more so than finding 1.12 somewhere

I'm on 1.11 (the new 1.11 if that makes any difference) and the change of colour scheme is done via the 'Status screen' menu item, which is itself at the bottom of the first page of the Setup menu list.

But I agree, the reference to 1.12 is actually a more interesting point

Wooops. Read about the possibility of 1:12 and typed that. Actually it is 1.11 as someone asked. I did get the problem fixed. Thanks to all who replied.

Maybe I'm using the same phantom upgrade since I just downloaded 1.12 and installed it on my K5 I have found my low light autofocus has improved dramatically.

K5 latest firmware update to 1.13

Just ordered my K5 today and was checking firmware versions. It now shows ver 1.13 as latest update from 1.11 and 1.12. Anyone updated their K5 yet?
