Firmware 1.0

When I power up my K10 with the menu button held, it shows 1.0. Should I be looking to upgrade? Any noticable benefits?
thx in advance...

All K10Ds made shipped with 1.0, even the last ones off the assembly line. You do want to update to at least 1.10 and there's no general reason not to go to 1.3. The full changelog is here:

Pentax Imaging - Software & Firmaware Updates

and some of the highlights are:
  • support for SDM (in the current DA★ lenses and in some upcoming ★ and not-★ lenses)
  • wireless P-TTL flash control using the built-in flash (this rocks)
  • e-dial can be set to adjust ISO in Av or Tv mode
  • in any mode, change ISO by holding OK and turning the front dial
  • vertical banding in long exposures reduced in certain cases
