Face Detect KP and K-1 with new firmware
3

I posted this on the announcement thread, but might be a useful own topic...

This may be too hard to verify other than by impressions and experience, but I am excited. My hunch was that where we would see something sneaky was in live view with face detect selected. I have uploaded the new firmware on my KP, and damn, once it detects a face it is by far stickier and faster and tracking!! Please others try this out and let us know, I am powering up my K-1 to try there as well. Lens used on KP was FA 31.

I have suspected since one of the last firmware updates is that they have been beta testing some face detect ideas and AF improvements on the KP for this new launch, and I think you will all notice a difference in reliability and speed in live view.
