FWIW: K-5 Firmware 1.13 Seems To Fix Low Light Green Button Lockup Issue.

The issue I'm referring to was easily triggered by pressing Green button in M mode under low light / low ISO conditions.   Typically I;d see this if  the shutter speeds proposed would be 8" or greater,  The camera with continue integrating the light to calculate an exposure value and would appear to hard lock if this process took too long.  Pointing the camera at bright light, or opening aperture, would unlock the camera.

With firmware 1.13, I have been unable to trigger this problem, and the proposed shutter speeds have been as high as 30".
