I am looking forward to the 7D firmware update - but I am not going to get my knickers in a twist if it is delayed

A delay, I wouldn't be surprised. Isn't that Canon's trademark?

Lol
A evil question - just how upset will every one be if this ends up as only a rumor?  :o

Sorry I couldn't help it. :-[

By measure of launch date.

+1

+2


You know, agreeing with me on this forum will lead to this only being a rumor. See, I'm one of those forum noobs with a low post count who simpy cannot know anything about anything.

Now if you'll excuse me I need to go and shoot,edit, print, mat, frame and sell more photography.

And the mighty FF firmware wins again! (5D3 firmware just released) Well 7D users, we've waited this long what's another month or two with high ISO noise

I bet its going to be as impressive as the new 5Dmk3 firmware...

it will recognise the 40mm f2.8 :o

The 7D firmware is a bit more overdue than the 5D3!

Agreed

Yes, I am sure that is causing the delay. The might work on adding support for the single focul length EF40mm f/2.8 STM - on top of the already mentioned updates on page 1 here.


And, does the 7D support the new 18-135 STM?

I'm wondering what they mean by "support" the 40mm f/2.8.
Does that mean embedding the lens profile for the auto-CA correction and such, or does it need new firmware to be able to drive the STMotor?

I'm hoping it's not the latter, because then it theoretically wouldn't work on any other bodies either (and I saw the AF work on a 600D last night), i'll find out tonight maybe if it works on an EOS 3.

So i'm presuming that they just mean adding in the lens profiles and such?

So now the 5D3 firmware update have released, are we going to see 7D firmware in 1-4wks?

We could take bets - my money is on the 7d firmware released after the "real" 5d3 firmware update fixing the black dots in af servo and such. And *maybe* then they'll update the 60d a little because it's newer than the 7d and "current" due to the 60da - hope dies last :-o

50d and 60Da have just had their firmware upgraded
