And the problems with the 200mm f/2.8? Were they fixed in the previous firmware? Sorry if I missed that.

Um...since when does a camera need to be updated to support a new lens? What on Earth is so special about the Shorty McForty that it warrants a 5DIII firmware update?

Probably for the in-camera peripheral illumination & CA correction...

I could have sworn that's done with lens profiles that you download to thhe camera with DPP, and not with firmware.

b&

This can be done on DPP and in camera.

The lens profile download you mentioned probably referring to 'Digital Lens Optimiser' (DLO). It can't be done in camera.

They said features will come at a later point, I guess that something.

They could also give me å second My Menu tab, and the ability to flip my menus around...

And those of you lucky so-and-sos on the worng side of the Pond who've already got your pancakes...any of all y'all got a 5DIII? Any problems with the combination?

Cheers,

the update for the shorty 40 will be for in camera CA corrections i guess...

Does this...

Supports the single focal length EF40mm f/2.8 STM lens that is to be released at the end of June, 2012.

Mean that firmware updates are required for other cameras before this lens will work with them?
Or what's the deal?

I also want to know. Does the EOS 5D Mark II (even more EOS bodies) also need a firmware to work with this lens?

I’m told that is is coming at a later date.

And some people Canon wouldn't learn from past mistakes! At least, now they're scrapping a release data completely, and go the Linux Debian way: "when it's done" :-p ...

But since current 5d3 buyers are early adopters anyway, af feature-updated firmware might matter more to people being critical about the price right now and would wait 6-12 months anyway.

I didn't see any difference in this latest firmware.

However i saw on the camera there's a Camera Firmware and a Lens firmware.
The lens firmware is still 1.1.0 and i can't update that to 1.1.3..only the camera firmware goes to 1.1.3….
What's this lens firmware? I never knew there was such a thing.

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.

Do I need to install Firmware update v1.1.2, before I can install v1.1.3? Or does v1.1.3 include the fixes from v1.1.2 also? I haven't installed any updates yet on my Light-Leak version 5DM3.

Look at the 5d3 manual - the firmware has to know about each specific lens to adjust the af's capabilities based on technical (and marketing?) concerns. 3rd party lenses emulate these lens codes, with bad results when Canon decides to screw them from time to time.

I don't know if there are other lens specs the camera body has to know about by firmware, but obviously it's not just "plug and play" with all relevant data transmitted by the lens itsself.
