    Re: K5 Firmware version 1.11 is out

    ??? FW 1.11 isn't new. Pentax UK had a non-functional link to version 1.12 for a while, but I guess they removed it or rerouted the link to 1.11.

    EDIT: Sorry to express it so bluntly

    Indeed v1.11 is out for some time now and according to rumours v1.12 is about to be released soon.

    Kind regards.

    No rumors AFAIK, just idle speculation and guesses as usual. But I think a minor revision by number such as this (provided it wasn't a typo to begin with) is unlikely to bring anything else than maybe some bug fixes and such.

    Pentax K-5 Firmware v1.12
    Expected within the coming days Posted on 12-28-2011 in Pentax News
    Pentax UK has recently published firmware version 1.12 for the Pentax K-5 on their web site, although the download link is not yet active.

    We will post an update once the download link becomes active. At that point, we expect the Japanese Pentax website to be updated with the latest firmware version as well.

    It is expected that this new firmware will contain stability fixes.
    I won't hold my breath, though ...

    Kind regards.

    Re: K5 Firmware version 1.11 is out

    Officially they're announcing only a stability fix w/ some GPS related bug removed. And as every time, users are seeing all kinds of other improvements as well. I don't know if any of these was ever really documented or seen by testing or is it just placebo effect.

    But David, thanks for the tip. I already upgraded mine.
