Pentax, Sony, Leica and Ricoh have released firmware updates for several of their cameras. Pentax has updated the firmware for its K-r, K-5 and 645D. Firmware v1.10 for all three cameras brings compatibility with the recently-announced 0-GPS module. Sony, meanwhile, has created updates for its NEX-3 and NEX-5, and SLT A33 and A55 models, adding many of the features of its forthcoming NEX-C3 and SLT A35 cameras. Leica has updated the firmware for its M9 digital rangefinder to improve color consistency across the frame when used with wide-angle lenses. Finally, Ricoh has updated its G700 and G700SE rugged industrial cameras. Click here for links to the updates.

Interesting and sad, that Pentax doesn't think about their older cameras, especially the K20D, which is, IMHO the best behind K5 Pentax camera. I want to keep it and like to have some refreshment with the firmware.

Sadly teh PHDK is not going to anywhere...

You have wrong versions for Pentax. They have 1.10 firmware versions, not 1.01
