Do we really need a different news story for the same firmware fix for every different camera model?

Yes. It's better for engagement and search engines.

Lens corrections on TS-E lensss? I know it’s in post processing, but my take on it is it would only be possible if either a) it assumes the tilt and shift are both at zero, or b) it records the timing and shift in the EXIF.

If it’s b, it is big news.

It's 'a', not news at all...

Hasselblad have had a T/S adapter that records the tilt and shift data for lens corrections for years.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

Been hoping for a few fixes for the 1dx2 for a long time, guess this was the last nail in the coffin...

Its pretty disappointing that Canon don't see fit to flood this camera with features, I mean stick them in a sub menu if they feel they compromise the "pro" features of this body, tbh this is the last time I buy a "full fat" camera from Canon, I love the 1DX2 but come on Canon, pack it full!!! Lets see the "Flag Ship" contain ALL the features of models below it, or how else is it KING of the line up.?  :'( :'( :'(

Very  dissapointing.
Nothing to make it more competitive with Sony a9 features wise.
With few added features it could still continue to be the king of the cameras, but like with real kings they stay for a while then new king comes on and old one just becomes part of the history.
Seems that 1DXm2 was my last purchase from Canon.
Now having  Sony a9 and a7r2 which soon will be upgraded to a7r3 and also full GM lens lineup feel Canon as some memories  from the past.
Very sad feeling.

Will this fix the shutter-mechanism-oil-spraying-on-sensor issue? Just encountered it after a few million actuations. It's real.

But on a serious note, there's an issue I feel I'm the only one in the world that has encountered it, and that is, when shooting to card, tethered to laptop using ethernet cable, and viewing on computer using web browser, vertical images are nor rotated accordingly, there is no option to select 'auto rotate' in camera or browser.

Shooting tethered with usb transfers on the fly, but the shooting speed bumps up against transfer speed. Much quicker to preview via browser from card.

Cheers.

A few bodies, lenses and lots of flash

Yes, agree , but I had no issues personally with that so far.
Each Sony new camera is not just features upgrade, they have almost all required already, some of them just magic- like eye focus and almost full AF coverage for a9, only few features are still desired.
GM lens IQ quality is also superb.
Most important that each Sony new model is significant advance in technology  compared to previous models.
So each time no hesitations to upgrade or not to upgrade.

  1DXm2 is falling more and more behind and slowly becomes niche camera for specialized usage but with good firmware features upgrade it could catch up for some longer period of time.  Some of them I listed in another thread.
I want as long life for my 1DXm2 as possible ( at lest for 4-6 years more ) but it seems that Canon has other opinions and directions and they do not want or Cannot  keep it competitive despite that they have all the technologies inside the camera but do not allow to use all of them.
 What they do the best  is limiting camera capabilities and not allowing one body be suitable for different needs. One have to buy another Canon body for that or which is more attractive now for many people to  get Sony body as complementary initially but then realizing that it becomes the main body and one do not need any more to stick to Canon.
