Re: Significant Firmware update performance improvement

I agree that the AF is now blazingly fast.  Is this an indication that toher cameras like K01 could hae this same improvement?  Now we need bigger Q buffer, more fps and better battery life and the Q is an almost inmatched little camera.

Re: Significant Firmware update performance improvement

I note the same, but today Pentax still has this notice regarding the latest Q firmware upgrade:

"We are sorry to inform you that the software version 1.11 is temporary not available."

It was pulled.  Does anyone know why?

They'll put a new version back...

probably soon, when it's de-bugged. Probably some bug.
