It seems I was lucky to get one of the better bodies:

Manufactured in January this year having Production Code 2.2.

I tested a K-5 II from Oct 2012 with Production Code 2.1 for a week and I didn't see too much difference to my K-5.

Do you think Pentax have updated the firmware in this interval? The K5 went to ver. 1.14 somewhere in there.

I updated the one of Oct 2012 to FW vers before using it; but I did not test the AF sensor for fast lenses at that time.

The K-5 II from Jan 2013 I got came with FW whereas very early bodies came with vers.
