I like how Canon has a middle finger up to all the 1D IV buyers, the 7D get's a major 2.0 firmware updateIt sounds like you don't own a 1DMk4. Most photographers who use them are likely to consistently thank their original decision to buy one.
and 1D IV is still at 1.1.1
Granted the 1D IV works great but 1D IV was announced later than the 7D an now it is already discontinued
from production with no new improvements in the firmware.
If you ask Canon they probably won't admit 1D IV ever existed and laugh at whoever bought it.
There is no particular need that I can see for firmware fixes. What is it you are taking aim at?
I think Canon can be justifiably very proud of the overall performance of the 1DMk4. It's a very refined and worked over upgrade from the previous 1D Mk3. I'd be more likely to laugh at photographers who have not had the pleasure of working with a Mk4 than expect to hear the smug laugh from Canon that you suggest.
Until I get a 1DX, I'll safely say that in a fairly long career using top of the line equipment the 1D Mk4 is the best camera I have ever worked with.
