What different animals they are...

K-5 - 2 stage update takes a fair bit of time.

K-5IIs - 3 stage update - seems a bit faster than the K-5 but still takes time.

K-01 - Single stage update done almost instantaneously!

Some seem to think the K-01 was basically the guts of a K-5 with a few tweaks.  The update process alone hints at an entirely different beast.  I think the main processor in the K-01 is probably faster than the K-5's by a good bit.  It was probably needed for Focus peaking.  The memory bandwidth may be as well but the small buffer limits it.

Just an observation from a firmware guy.
