  • 新レンズHD PENTAX-D FA★50mmF1.4 SDM AWの動作に最適化しました。
  • 全体的な動作の安定性を向上しました。
  • ※本アップデートを行うと、バージョン1.43以前の内容も更新されます。
  • ※K-1MII及びK-3IIはファームアップは必要ありません。

The firmware is primarily for to make the cameras compatible with the new 50mm F1.4 lens. The only other change is "overall stability of operation"

It is specifically stated that the K-1MII and K-3II do not need this firmware update, so we can infer then that compatibility with the 50mm was baked in already with the previous firmware release.

That makes sense in the case of the K-1ii.

But there have been a number of firmware releases for the K-1 since the last K-3ii firmware release. Yet the K-1 still needed this extra update.

Did they really get the K-3ii firmware right for this lens in August 2016, but not get it right for the K-1 at that same time, nor since then, until now?
