I see there are now three K3 firmware updates available.
I am still on the original one and wonder if there is any significant benefit it upgrading!!!

Sometimes updating is a good idea, very rarely it causes new problems that have to be addressed with another update.

Generally, you might as well update and take advantages of whatever performance improvements are on offer.

And you ONLY need the latest. It is a full firmware build. Don't do as I have heard some others do and work through update 1, update 2, update 3.

Thanks for that info, I have just aquired a K3 and was wondering if I needed to install in order or go straight to update 3javascript:;

Being a very new camera I'd definitely suggest applying the update, as it's sure to have addressed some initial release bugs.

They generally explain what is in each update (compatibility with new lens offerings for example) but you'll never know what minor bug fixes may also be in there that haven't been specifically mentioned. There could be a lot tucked away under that 'general performance improvements' part
