K100D firmware

What exactly does firmware for K100D upgrade? I know it allows camera to use SDHC memory cards. Does it do anything else? Has anybody had bad experience with it?

I upgraded my K100D to version 1.01 so that the focal length you enter when using manual focus lenses will be included in the EXIF of the image.
I have several manual focus lenses and it's handy to have the focal length recorded. It installed with no problems; just make sure you read all the instructions!

I have upgraded the firmware to v1.03. Avery useful feature it adds (it seems that it was added already in 1.01) is the manual lens's focal length menu, that pops up at power on if You have manual focus lens attached and SR in ON position.

The installation went through without any problems and very smoothly. It takes about a minute or two to complete.

Well, I could have sworn that I installed 1.03 version. But it seem I was mistaken (I probably have mistaken it for 1.30 for K10D ;-) Sorry...
However, there is a version 1.02 for K100D.
