Pentax has just announced that its K-5 II and K-5 IIs twin flagship dSLRs will be getting new firmware that will add a new capability to the camera's LCD screen while also promising better performance in terms of stability.
The most obvious change top the cameras, which are identical save the absent low-pass filter in the 's,' is the new ability to change the contrast of the camera's rear LCD monitor to better fine tune the appearance of the screen to the actual image as printed off the computer. For anyone with a mis-calibrated LCD screen, the difference in a picture's appearance on the camera to in print can be dramatic.
Also promised is better stability. As for what this means, Pentax hasn't said any specifics here.
The new firmware, v1.01 is available for download right now.
