Can you select English language option, or is it only in Australian?

Ha ha ha  ;D

The one on the AU Canon site has the same MD5 hash as the one leaked earlier from Dropbox.  I just compared both downloads

5D300121.FIR                                   3cab840cd3d4cf175b5b4e0ea514eba9

So nothing new and nothing less.  I am impressed with the list of fixes.  I guess it's been a while.

One other thing to note, the AU site info states moving to 1.2.1 is a one way firmware upgrade.  Apparently you cant roll back to 1.1.3.

Here are the fixes:

Firmware Version 1.2.1 incorporates the following functional improvements and fixes.
1. Uncompressed HDMI output is now enabled.
2. Enables the center AF point to autofocus when the camera is used with Canon EF lens/extender combinations whose combined maximum aperture is f/8.
3. Improves the speed of the camera's acquisition of focus when using a Canon Speedlite's AF-assist beam.
4. Fixes a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor may freeze and display Err 70 or Err 80 when a still photo is taken during Live View or in movie shooting mode.
5. Fixes a phenomenon that may occur when the continuous shooting priority setting is enabled for multiple exposures, such that, after the sixth image is taken, there is a slight pause before the remainder of the sequence is completed.
6. Fixes a phenomenon in which the viewfinder display shows incorrect information during AEB shooting.
7. Communication with the WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter has been improved.
8. When images have been successfully transferred with the WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter through the FTP protocol, an "O" will be displayed. When images have not been successfully transferred with the WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter through the FTP protocol, an "X" will be displayed.
9. Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera may not function properly when an Eye-Fi card is used.
10. Fixes a phenomenon in which the focal length value listed in the Exif information is not displayed correctly for images shot with the EF 24-70mm F4L IS USM lens.
11. Fixes a phenomenon in which the lens firmware cannot be updated properly.
12. Corrects errors in the Arabic language menu.
13. Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera changes the AF microadjustment value to -8.
14. Fixes a phenomenon in which the on-screen guidance cannot be fully displayed when setting the maximum limit value for the "Setting the ISO Speed Range for Auto ISO" option.

:( damn so then they locked out 70-300L+1.4x TC III AF?!?! The 1DX f/8 firmware had that in, even if unofficially. :( damn that was one of the things I was most looking forward too.... may have to sell off my canon tc and buy kenko and hope they are sharp....

Just out of interest, does the firmware update wipe out and reset to default all your personal/custom settings and AFMA settings?
If so, it may be an idea to make a note of all those easily forgotten, hard earned refinements before hitting the update "go-button".

No it does not.  All of your custom settings as well as AFMA settings are retained.

Weren't they supposed to introduce some visual help for AF point selection at dark or something?

No, not possible on the 5D3 due to the way it meters.

Damn! I so want the illuminated red AF points like we've had almost forever until the 7D, 5D3 and 1DX.
That was the biggie for me...sigh.

OK. Eye-Fi users remove the Eye-Fi card before you update. I clicked the update firmware and it went black. Turning on and off did nothing. Removing batteries, grip did nothing. Removed the CF card and nothing. The last thing to remove was the Eye-FI card and the camera booted while the power switch was set to off. Except it booted to a firmware update screen and sat there for a while not doing anything so I rebooted and it came up normal and the firmware was still reporting 1.1.3 so I started the update again and everything went fine.
