Does this mean that in the future, when Canon stops supporting the camera and a new lens comes out that the camera will not be able to fully use the lens.  I will have to buy the latest camera body to have a new lens be totally compatible?????  Oh no. Now my camera is just like my computer and adobe. Built in obsolescence? Oh, joy.

Yes yes yes! Canon always stops supporting discontinued bodies expect the EOS 50D. It is unbelievable that Canon released a new firmware update for the EOS 50D in early 2012. I think the EOS 50D’s firmware may be much the same as EOS 5D Mark II’s because there would be a firmware update shortly after the 5D Mark II’s and the mainly changed items were identical.

The old EOS bodies may not fully compactable with the latest EF (EF-S) lenses. For example, the classic EOS 5D - with the final firmware (v1.1.1, released in 2008) installed - even cannot recognize some lenses’ names. The EF100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM (released in 2009) just shown as “100mm” in the EXIF.

I said "may", not must. Please review your grammar.

The word totally means 100%. If one body cannot call out the mounted lens’ name while others can, how can I say it is totally compatible?

I have to confess I dont understand your response

I have reviewed my grammar and it seems plain that I am asking for more detailed info. I am not sure in my mind what you are trying to say which is why I asked if the lens still worked OK.
