New Firmware

    There's a set of firmware updates for current and recent DSLRs - plus the K01 - on Ricoh's support and service page.

    There are three issues covered;-

    AF assist with the white light on the two new Pentax flashguns

    Optimised contrast AF with the Limited lens series

    Improved stability for general performance

    As always, I think it's worth downloading and installing these updates even if you don't have the new kit involved because of the "general" improvements as mentioned this time.

    Whenever Pentax introduce new firmware they always say this. I wish they would expand and give us some idea as to what the general improvements may be.

    The Pentax User forum usually has a few people posting who notice improvements after loading the updates, usually just quicker AF.

    I think Martin it's probably the placebo effect in as much as they think that AF, AE etc etc is faster or better. Still there's nothing wrong with that.

    If my K-5 were any faster it would have focussed before I switched it on! :)
    Thanks for the link, though, I will download it.

    Thanks Martin and I'll do the download for my K-r and the K-30 as a fellow picked up a K-30 the day before the Firmware came out and he might as well go home with the latest firmware :)
