I only this was my only problem.

Apparently they noticed at Ricoh and updated the page and firmware file name for the K5IIs. It is now as it should be named. "k5_2s107.EXE"


Right after I made this thread, 21 hours ago, I downloaded k5_2s107.EXE for my K5 IIs. I still have it on my computer as k5_2s107.EXE. That's what is so confusing to me. You made your post after I downladed it. I have looked into it right after you made that claim and it was still k5_2s107.EXE showing on the download site. Oh well. I'm glad that it is clear for you now as it always was clear for me.


A lot of people do not 'refresh' the page when they visit it, We already know Ricoh have a long Time To Live set on their page .

This means unless 'refreshed' anyone who regularly visits their support pages will see the cached version from their local machine which of cause will be old versions.

Yep - he was seeing an older, cached version. Changes are not always instantly propagated over the Internet, and on your machine

I downloaded the new version just after Ron opened this topic, and everything was OK.
