Things have really changed since I started this post a few months ago. I was very frustrated at the time and not I couldn't be more satisfied. I just used both of my 5D3s at a wedding last Saturday and they both have the firmware update. I shot 2,700 pictures with at least 1000 being in a very dark fast moving reception and I nailed just about every shot I took. There is a huge difference in the focus speed with the AF assist beam now. It once caused the focus to slow way down and now it speeds it up drastically. My 50mm 1.2 used to say in my bag because it would simply not focus in the dark. I used the heck out of it and shot at 1.2 most of the time with most being keepers. When I use the 24-70 f/2.8L II, I feel like I am cheating because it focuses on whatever I want instantly. I am very happy!
good to hear....i haven't done the update yet and have been waiting to see if anybody was having problems after updating....sounds like you're saying "go ahead and update" right?
I would update immediately. Especially if you use the AF assist beam at all.
