New K20D firmware version question.

Hello!
I ordered k20d, new. It should arrive soon. It's not manufactured any more, but, what firmware version it should come with? 1.03? Or 1.0 so I will need to update it to latest?
Also, what is the manufacture date of the last bunch of k20d's? the last i found searching trough images on net is about 4th february 2009.
If there is someone who bought k20d recently new, i think can help. Manufacture date can be seen in exif by program like PhotoMe.Also the firmware.
Regards.

No idea what it would come with... probably 1.0

I would have an sd card with the new firmware ready to go when it arrives!

I got my K20d two weeks ago and it didn't have 1.03 so I updated the firmware. I don't remember what came on the camera.

Definitely 1.0

My one came with 1.0. First thing I did was to flash the new firmware. I cannot see any point in testing it with old software. I want to make sure it works with, what is most likely to be the final release.

Thanks friends
To me, it is interesting that Pentax still sells cameras with bad firmware?! They should put the new software in their cameras, as it is proven that it fixes some quality issues!
Anyway,
Patrickt, can You please tell me manufacture date of your's k20d? Or, if you dont have PhotoMe installed, you can shoot 1 photo on smallest resolution and upload it without any software procesing, so i can see full exif. Thank you.
