Looks like the file's been removed from dropbox.  Perhaps some kind soul who already grabbed the file could repost it somewhere so I can brick my camera?    :)

Tested AF-assist beam with my 580 EXII and it's back to the performance I was accustomed to in older models. IE: 5Dc, 5D2, 1Ds II...

No lag using Single point AF in decent low-light.
Did anyone test this with 600 rt?? I am asking because it has different light pattern than 580 ex.

I only had time on my lunch break to test AF at F8 using my 600 and 2XIII.  I agree it's snappy and responsive.  IQ is rather poor as expected.  I also think the AF response seems to be a bit faster as well.  Time will tell.

It did NOT brick my camera.  ;)  Yeah!

AF @ f8 feels snappy even at low light, it locks on reliably and with good speed, on my sleeping cats nose (with 1/50 and iso5000, canon 500mm f4 IS II and canon 2x III).

For those of you who have tested, are you getting an uncompressed signal through HDMI?
I mean, does the recorded video look flat as an uncompressed video should be (like the videos that the Black Magic camera produces)?

I am lucky to be able to go out and have such test subjects on my lunch break.  Didn't have time to AFMA the setup but this is a 600mm F4L IS with 2XIII extender.  AF with center spot focus.  Lighting was bad but it still locked quickly and I was shooting into the sun.  :(  I think it's back focusing a little looking at the branch in back of them.

I will test tonight.  I dont have an HDMI monitor here at the office.

Any trusted members here who care to reupload the firmware file that they've tried and tested?

oh well i will just keep using ML nothing in the new FM is useful for me, now ML can shoot 2040x1428 14bit RAW DNG without shutter actuation on 5D3 very good for time lapse. While Nikon can do time lapses canons cant without a intervalometer probably so that they make more money.

No they did not...at least I haven't found anything in the menus and they don't light up during AF.  We'll have to wait for the official docs to come out to determine if there is some special setting combination that would kick something like that in.  So far it doesn't appear so.

Did they fix the black AF points issue in this update?

Installed and running.  The HDMI signal from the camera is showing no overlays and image is edge to edge on a 1920x1080 TV.  It was nice to find the new "Mirroring" menu option.  In the pic below, the camera is connected to the monitor and the LCD remains on, sweet!  When I press record, both stay on, however the red  recording dot only showed up on the camera LCD.

Do you have audio out over HDMI? Are there any other HDMI settings in the menu other than the mirroring option?
