After a long time of uncertainty, Ricoh Imaging has now released a firmware update for the Pentax K-3 to support the new KAF4 lens mount. KAF4 lenses do not have a mechanical aperture-dipping lever; They require an electronic actuation of the opening instead. Before this firmware update, the K-3 could not output the necessary commands to operate this system.

Thanks to this update, the new Silentfokussierende da 55-300mm PLM lens can be used with the K-3. We recommend this lens to its predecessor AF.  A similar update was released for the K-3 II, K-S2, K-S1 and K-1 months and the K-50 today. The K-70 (and newer) supports KAF4 lenses by default. Older bodies are not compatible with KAF4 lenses.
