Lens firmware update
« on: January 13, 2013, 02:08:50 PM »
Its my first time updating a lens firmware, I wanted to update the firmware on my 40mm pancake lens because its kinda loud when using with manual focus so I thought it would help, but on canons website it only has it for mac os 10.7 and I'm using 10.8. Would it not work if I just select 10.7 and download it anyway? I don't want to mess up my camera/lens so I've been hesitate to try it. Or do you think they'll have it for 10.8 in the near future?

Thanks!

Just download the 10.7 one - it'll work fine on 10.8.

Generally OS X 10.7 software will work with 10.8, as 10.8 was not a major change.

The firmware update isn't MacOS software.  All the Mac needs to do is mount the .dmg file so you can copy the file to a CF/SD card.

To the OP - hopefully you're aware you can't use any body to update lens firmware, you need a 2012 body (T4i/650D, 5DIII or 1D X).

The 6D will also work.

Absolutely, also a 2012 body. Thanks!

Thanks everyone!

Yeah, I just went ahead and downloaded it. I was just curious because I had never done a lens update before, but it was just like a camera firmware update, finished in no time.

Confirmed. I updated my 40mm pancake using my 6D.
