K-R Firmware. Which one?

Hi everyone!

I recently got my first Pentax, a K-R.

I have upgraded it to the 1.14 firmware, the only one available on the USA/Canada site.

But I see the 1.15 on the Japan site. Should I use it instead or it is not for my region ?

The US Ricoh site links to the Japan site when you choose updates for the K-r. Regionalization (if any) usually is for language.

Pentax firmware updates are region-agnistic, so you can go ahead and install 1.15.
