They seem to be updating the 7D firmware a lot compared to other bodies. 7D is great and I like to see it getting the love and attention it deserves. It does make one wonder if this means any direct successor to 7D will be slower than normal in coming, or perhaps not coming at all??Actually, I think this is a firmware update for things the previous firmware update broke more than anything.
Agreed. Thanks for the love Canon! One problem I observed after that update was the loss of 8.5 fps during Ai Servo. It would shoot maybe 3 or 4 frames and pause for a moment and then continue even using a 90mb/sec CF card. Secondly, using a Canon battery grip has been known to create problems using Ai and 'H' frame per second.
