Hi all, just to let you know about a week ago Pentax released the first K3 firmware update, V1.01. http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/digital/k3_s.html Have not downloaded it yet but will when I have a chance. The tweaks appear minor for this one, featureing: Shorten processing time of combining time for HDR Capture. Improved performance of continuous shooting when using phase-matching autofocus. Extended enlarged display time for live view. Improved stability for general performance. An encouraging sign they are up for supporting this camera Cheers, Atavar.
