Firmware for K3

I have not upgraded my firmware since I bought my camera about 18 months ago. Should and and why?

Does any of these look important to you?

I would update the firmware - because there were several versions, and important things were added including support for (then) new products and performance improvements - but that's up to you.

I was cautious for many months and then upgraded after it was clear that the firmware was stable.

I would definitely update with the latest version of K-3 firmware. The latest (v. 1.21) encompasses all the updates (at once) and it is stable.

I just upgraded from 1.11 to 1.21. It was quick and easy, no problems and it will enable me to use the teleconverter.

sorry for error it was K-3 firmware version 1.03 that added: Correspond to HD PENTAX-DA AF REAR CONVERTER 1.4X AW, not version 1.11. In any case I now know that the TC is compatible with my camera firmware and I have the latest firmware installed.
