    Pentax Q 1.10 firmware adds focus peaking!

    Pentax came out this week with a version 1.10 firmware and they do not go over details what things this fixed, but it already has been observed:

    - Focus peaking- and it works in conjunction with the magnification. You need to set it to on under the focus menu options (AF or MF depending which mode you are in)

    - Movies before took like 2-3 seconds have their sound to start being recorded. This is not completely fixed but not takes about 1/2-1 second to do so

    - AF speed has speed up a notch (seen a video of before/after).

    - AF in lower light seems to have improved slightly (more ability to focus vs "giving up") - need to test this more to make sure but seems like it.

    - Tav mode is now effectively added to the Q in M mode. Basically you set the aperture and shutter speed, camera picks the ISO for you. Just set the ISO to Auto in M mode, and you are in K-7's/K-5's Tav mode.

    Probably other minor or stability improvement stuff we have not noticed yet.

    I must say it's amazingly nice that Pentax is doing this. They are really committed to the Q.

    Thanks Raist

    Looks like it stabilizes third party manual lenses now - which is wonderful

    Also movie IS "jumps" are fixed! It seems to stabilize much better for movies also.
