Not sure if it's fact, but I seem to recall reading somewhere that the K5 doesn't have enough RAM for the firmware update that provides support for PLM lenses.

It would be nice if the K-5 got an update for KAF4 aperture actuation. I'd then get a 55-300 PML!

May I rather cheekily suggest that the solution would be to buy my K-3 with my 55-300 PLM lens which will both very shortly be up for sale to help fund a K-1 purchase?

I never did the last one (for the 55-300 PLM lens) and don't see any need to do this one either as they're both for lenses that I'm extremely unlikely to own. Does seem strange there's nothing for the K3 II though.

Problem is I like the K-3ii more for the built in GPS. On top of that I'm also considering a K-1

Yes, itís a shame the 55-300 PLM is not an FA lens, but then it would not be so conveniently compact.

K-3 II already works mainly fine with the PLM with the f/w 1.10 update - except for issues that I outlined in this post on the US forum, but others have mentioned things that might fix them
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)
