Is the K100D update safe and really needed ?
I have never heard of a update for a camera,
but you do hear of problems with updates for computers, software, etc.

The last update for my DS made it a DS2, which gave it quite a few new features and fixed some issues with the camrea. See if the update includes things you need and if so go for it, but follow directions exactly when doing the update.

I did the update for the DS and was really happy I did (simple, takes very little time, went smoothly). I've downloaded the update for the K100 but have never actually done it - it sounded like it adds the ability to use bigger cards, but since I use 1 GB card in it, not sure it will offers me enough to do it.

Has anyone done the update?

I did the update on the K100D and haven't had any problems. The main thing it gives you is the ability to use larger SD cards (up to 4GB), but these updates typically fix other unseen bugs. I haven't seen any difference since I updated as soon as I got it. That's how I generally treat all my electronics; update to the latest as soon as I receive it.

Of course, if it works for you, then there's no reason to update. Also, camera firmware updates are common. They're not always an indication of problems. Many times, it's to add features.
