Pentax K7 Firmware upgrade 1.2.016

I noticed that after my upgrade to the latest firmware that my pictures where soft. I found out in rare occasions, others where having the same issue. I reloaded the firmware again and had the same issue. I was getting soft pictures on tripod, with remote. Before my pictures could cut you they where so sharp.

So the third upgrade before I did the upgrade I turned shake reduction off and made sure I put the camera on a level table without touching or moving the camera before the upgrade process.

Looks like all the images are razor sharp again. Not sure if that had anything to do with it or 3 is a charm, but it worked. I wonder if some sort of calibration is going on in the upgrade process so you have to keep it still. Probably not, but its working now, thats all that matters.

If any of you are having the same process works, let me know.
