Pentax has issued yet another firmware update for two of its cameras, but one that fixes a pretty niche issue.  

Firmware updates come in all shapes and sizes. Some add amazing new features such as improved AF like the recent Nikon Z9 update, reinvigorating our camera with the feeling of a new model. Some are not so extravagant, but fix issues within the camera expressed by user feedback. The new Pentax update for the Pentax K-3 III Monochrome and Pentax K-3 III falls under the latter.
