@noblepa:
As said earlier, it's available.

@cps_goodbuy:
If you don't have SDM lenses, there is no need for it from that perspective. There is at least one lens (Pentax 17-70) that is SMD only; so if you don't want a manual focus only option with that lens, you will need the upgrade.

Windows 7?

I finally got to the Pentax website and found the 1.30 firmware update for my K10D.

The update says it's good for Windows ME, 2000, & XP. Does it matter that I'm running W7?

Naw, it doesn't matter. Any Windows that supports USB is good, all you need to do is put a firmware file in the root directory of your camera's SD card. For what it's worth, I performed the 1.00 -> 1.30 upgrade yesterday using a Windows 7 computer, no worries.

Thanks

Thanks. This is one of the few times that the instructions provided by a manufacturer were very clear and helpful. It was very easy to do.

Thanks, all!!
