Do i need to download firmware update?

Hey guys, So I bought myself a kx a few days ago and am very new to photography in general but I had a question about the 1.01 firmware update.

Since I bought the camera a few days ago, do I still need to update the firmware or is it not necessary?

good ?..... you can check the camera itself..
K-x To check the version number, turn your camera on while holding down the MENU button.
The version number will appear in the center of the LCD screen.

if you're not running the latest version, absolutely download and install....

Make sure you have a very good and fully charged battery ans you wouldn't want the K-x to die running out of juice when it hasn't finished updating as you will end up with a very expensive paperweight!
