Firmware: Canon EOS-1D X Mark II v1.1.3
« on: February 15, 2017, 08:18:42 AM »
Canon has released new firmware for the EOS-1D X Mark II.

Changes in the Firmware Firmware Version 1.1.3 incorporates the following improvements to enhance functions.

  1. Corrects a phenomenon in which the drive mode icon is not correctly displayed when using custom shooting modes (C1/C2/C3).
  2. Changes the maximum number of “Release cycles” displayed from 1,000,000 cycles to 9,999,000 cycles. This value can be checked under the “Camera system information” menu.
  3. Improves the reliability of communication via USB cable when using the Lens Data Registration function within EOS Utility 3 software.

A bit disappointed that it was nothing about the IS never stops in LV and that touch focus can't be used when AF is not on the shutter...

Pretty bare bones. Think I'll pass -- nothing in it for me. I wish they'd add a bit more functionality to the touch screen.

Extreme disappointment here. Every time I have called CPS lately I have asked that they pass on the need to create a substantial upgrade on the touch screen capabilities for the 1dx ii. I truly hope they are listening & make that happen as soon as poss. , I think I might call again today . . .

I'm keen to see if it fixes my issue with the 200 f2.0 in that when the lens is mounted to the camera the camera fails to power up, pull the battery and it fires up no problem, CPS had the same issue with theres. I know my "fix" is not listed but I have had such issues disappear before with firmware updates even though they are not listed. I doubt Canon will ever update the firmware of the 200L2 even though when used with the 1DX2 it's one of the fastest combinations for sports etc.

Has anyone already reached that many cycles that they needed to fix it?

Not yet but probably will by the end of the year.  I reached it on my 1DX's a while ago.  I'm happy with this change and would have requested it if I actually thought it would be implemented.  Much easier to keep track of when to get my shutter/mirrorbox replaced before they break in the field.

Yes, I too wish they would enable the touch screen for normal operation, just like they did on the 5D IV. Obviously they can enable it, if they want to, but most likely will never do it. Such a shame to limit that functionality on the basis that 'Professionals' don't need it, just like they don't include HDR or Timelapse functions either.

We can only hope they hear us!

Wel I installed it, does not do anything other than what's listed, not that I had any of those issues.  It does not fix my 200/2 issues. Shame as its a GREAT lens, works as it should on all my other bodies... as for the 1DX2 you never know I updated it. :S

Sorry Viggo missed that post, no not all the time, but most of the time, say 6 out of 10 times if you mount and de mount the lens time after time.  When I called CPS I expected them to say "nope, ours is fine it's just you" but much to my surprise they had the same problem, there are some early 200/2 that has IS issues with the 5D3 but this lens is a later one so you'd expect it to be fine.

Ouch, that sucks... can't remeber the age of mine, but it was a few years more than the first one I had. Hope they'll fix it. Does the error code log provide any info?

Yes I can't stand continuous IS on even when you're in the menus wtf. I have to manually off it on the lens to save the big white lens IS lifespan

I don't have that issue with the same lens and body either. Lens is just a year old though
