Hi Tron.
Of all the firmware updates this seems like one of the more useful as it not only adds lens correction for T/S lenses, it fixes stuff. (Also for T/S Lenses!)  :)
Support will be added to fix a phenomenon* in which standard exposure may not be obtained, or an irregular exposure may result, when Silent LV (Live View) shooting with the following TS-E lenses: TS-E 50mm f/2.8L MACRO, TS-E 90mm f/2.8L MACRO, or TS-E 135mm f/4L MACRO.
Also doesn't this bit "Support for Exif 2.31 will be added." Get read by all compatible software, not just DPP.

Cheers, Graham.

I don't use c-log OR video for that matter, so I don't mind it at all that I don't have to pay for C-log.

But the corrections for TSE lenses don't apply when shifted?  I know I'm changing subjects...

Still how all these translate for you? Even if you (will) use TS lenses do you use silent LV and/or DPP?

When they add "peripheral illumination correction" for Canon TSE lenses, is there any chance it will fix the problem with third party lenses? Specifically my Sigma 85 f1.4 goes wonky at very large apertures when I have peripheral illumination set to "on" in the menus.

Hi MrFotoFool.
Doubtful, Canon either don't care or are more than happy for you to have a reason not to buy 3rd party lenses! :)

Hi Tron.
I think the silent live view thing may have value, I don't currently own a T/S lens, but if I did (and I would like to, I went on a CPS course recently) I would likely use live view as these things are not something you generally hand hold and use in a hurry, I also sometimes use silent live view, so this fix comes in to play when you 'forget to deselect' silent live view when you put the T/S on the front, and who hasn't forgotten worse things than that! :)
Plus I don't have a 5DIV so I don't have either of the items to create this issue, but what the hey!  :) :)

Cheers, Graham.

hello, thanks for answering. I asked all these because although i have tse lenses (24 and 17 but i use mostly the 17) i didn't feel i am missing any functionality but i get your point about live view. Still this update seems more like a bug fixer rather than a feature update to me.

Hi Tron.
Absolutely a bug fix update.  :)
I'm praying for one feature update firmware fix when (if?) they update the exif on the 7DII, I would really like gps off with power switch off, I keep forgetting to go in and enable it in the menu and it flattens the battery all the time (even when the power switch is off )if you leave it enabled!

Cheers, Graham.
