I had a look at the Pentax Germany web site and I could find no mention of any new firmware updates. In the end I just emailed Pentax and asked them if a new firmware update is due out soon for the DS. I'm far too impatient to wait the eight days to find out, I need to know asap :?

i just talked to 2nd tier tech in golden,co. they know nothing about it-zero..

she did say that one of the trade offs to get the price down was the ds not being able to continuous focus and it's doubtfull that it could be done..

so i'll just wait and see..

Saying that the DS can't have continues focusing is wrong, it is just firmware no hardware involved.

Your correct... the proof is in "moving object mode"... which has continous autofocus hence the DS is capable of it.... heck it does it... just not in all modes.... simply firmware

Thanks robar!

.... www.tekade.de is one of the major dealers for pentax-dslr's in germany.

... and we know many people from pentax-europe and pentax-germany....

So I knew the V2.0 some days earlier than others ..... :G:G:G
