Support Under almost all shooting conditions (including dark environments) this phenomenon will not affect your captured images. However, if you would like Canon to inspect your camera, we will provide this service free of charge upon request beginning in mid-May.

Fixes a phenomenon where the Shooting Date/Time in the EXIF data of the image shows a later time than the actual shooting time. 5. Fixes the time zone for the Samoa Islands. 6.

Firmware Version 1.1.2 is for cameras with firmware up to version 1.0.7. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.1.2, it is not necessary to update the firmware. The new Firmware Version 1.1.2 can be downloaded by clicking here.

This is the first I have heard seriously about an 85L replacement, but anything that speeds up the AF of the lens would be very welcomed.
I believe we’ll have to see the new 500, 600 and 24-70′s shipping before we get another major “L” lens updated.

Diffractive optic patents keep coming up, though no new products are being announced. It does appear Canon is invested in the technology and thinks there is a market for it. I am a big fan of the 400 DO and hope to see longer DO lenses in the future.
Read more about the patents after the break.
Patent Publication No. 2012-78397
Conventional diffractive optical element
Below are three separate reviews done by Ron Martinsen, he’s pretty positive about the new flash.
Most of the added features mentioned would aid video. It mentioned new visual aids on the LCD for exposure and audio. Also a suggestion about an autofocus feature being added. We have heard that a new 18-135 IS lens would be coming with a silent autofocus motor alongside the T4i, so maybe there is a new AF feature coming.
Canon has really only added significant features to the 5D Mark II via firmware in the past, so this would be a unlikely situation in my opinion. Although, adding features to the 7D to boost some sales while we wait for a successor does make some sense. Definitely CR1 for now.
I really like Canon stuff. I´m a Nikon, Canon user. The two brands have their advantages. But here in this topic, what i´m seeing is an attempt to "fire down" the DXO Lab. So i brought a link for you to know how scientific the tests are done there.
Dude, for studio photos, landscape, advertising, portraits, food, the D800 blows the MK III out of the waterm it´s a matter o fact. For weddings, video, sports, journalism, wildlife the 5D MK III blows the D800. Like the D700 and the MK II , but this time switching "sides".
So DXO is the forbidden term now? Should we spell it D..O?
First K..n Ro..ell and now D..O.
The news broke on Nikon Rumors before it did here lol.
From Ong Khiaw Seng from Canon Singapore
With reference to your question on whether Canon Singapore will recall the EOS 5D MK III due to the light leak issue, we wish to inform you that we will not. However we will contact you later this month to rectify this issue. Please leave us your contact number for our Service team to contact you.
Here’s hoping the above remains true.
