It is 1.2.0!  Can anyone tell me if the current AF points turn red at all with firmware 1.1.3?  Curiously, going to Canons website for 5D3 firmware download, I didn't see the 1.1.3 firmware for download on all the OS (Mac or Windows) choices.

Hmm, this is intriguing. Would be a shame though if the focus points aren't fixed.

Its starting to show up.  A couple or three weeks until its released.  This gives them a little time to see if any bugs are found.  You can test for 10 years with a hundred beta testers, but a million users can find things in a week or two.

If I recall correctly, canon announced the AF visibility issue may not be fixable in the 5D3 due to the way it meters.  The 1DX meters differently somehow and could possibly be fixed in that model.  I wouldn't hold your breath that it will show up in 1.2.
