UPDATE: Pentax has replaced the defective firmware for the K-1 and K-1 Mark II, after "anomalies" caused the previous updates to be suspended in December. 

The new V2.41 firmware corrects a number of problems in the two Pentax cameras caused by December's V2.40 update: image recording failure when combining Astrotracer Type 3 with interval shooting; erroneous LCD panel indication of full memory cards; incorrect display of remaining shots in the viewfinder; and inconsistent exposure countdowns on the LCD panel when using Astrotracer Type 3.
