Just saw Pentax have released an incremental firmware update. Seems to correct a bug introduced in the recent 1.02.

"Corrected When recording Movies, contrast AF does not work for some lenses in firmware version 1.02.

"*If you have already updated to Version1.02, we are very sorry for this inconvenience. Please update to Version 1.03."


K-30

K-01

If there's nothing wrong with your camera then updating can sometimes break something. Updates can introduce bugs. That's exactly what happened in 1.02. And there's not always such a quick fix as there was this time with 1,03

Is it possible to downgrade firmware on K-30? Not that I need to do it, but I am just asking in case that something does not work well with the new fw version.
