Firmware publishing

In general, how long after Pentax discontinues a camera can we expect to see firmware updates?

In general, never. I haven't seen any for my K20D since the K7 emerged.

The K-7 got a firmware update last March but firmware updates for discontinued cameras are rare as hen's teeth.

If you go to the support page you can actually see historics and download the most recent updates for all models. The first and only for my K200D was relased in April 2010!
