I do not see it on the Pentax Website. Where did you get it from?

Re: Firmware for K10D IS here...

As I said, I received the mail from Pentax rep this afternoon with firmware and information about upgrade inside.

It's 2 megs file, named "Firmware_Update_101.exe".

For those who doesn't believe, your problem. I'm not a boy wanting publicity, I just wanted you to know that firmware DOES exist and is ready to be announced.

Why there is no information on Pentax site, I have no idea, but their reps seem to have the thing and send it to us who ordered our K10's directly from them.

Good job it's not a Sony upgrade...

..or your camera might explode!

No doubt that the upgrade will be posted on thePentax website in the next couple of days, making some of the cynics look pretty foolish, would be my guess.

Firmware upgrade is NOT available

If you got a pre-release from someone at Pentax, good for you. If it is not available to the general public than it is NOT available.

Re: Firmware upgrade is NOT available

Would you be so kind to show me where did I stated that it is "available" ?

I've said that I've got it, I didn't mention anything about public availability. But it will be available very very soon, that's for sure...

Re: Firmware for K10D IS here...

Sorry guys, have no idea about banding yet and have that firmware only in the Inbox of my Outlook so far.

Just wanted to share the information with you and ease up the waiting. I'm going home now and I'll try to upgrade. Just hope that it will not end up like that K110 a couple of threads bellow...

Greetings everyone.

Enjoy your Pentax !

There is always some risk at upgrading, but I think most people will try this one. Are you a beta-tester

Re: Firmware for K10D IS here...

OK, I'll try to send it - but just for you Martynas_ds, or I will really end up sending mails all night long if all of you guys want me to the same thing. And this IS one big forum, I'm sure

Or just wait until it's official. Can't be that important to gain some few hours, can't it?
