... Then it really might be only the updates 1dx/1df af that needs information about new lenses?

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.

Just use the latest one. It has all the earlier fixes/updates in it.

is Canon going to be changing the color of the AF points from black on the 1D X?  Is that why it's delayed?  The black AF points are annoying as hell, and I'm not sure if a simple firmware update can fix it or not.   :-\

FYI - the firmware update will not load properly if you have a second card inserted and the camera setting is set to read to both cards.  Remove the second card or set the camera to only read to the card with the update on it for the firmware installation to complete.  Cheers.

So what is the general recommendation if shooting RAW. Do vignetting and chromatic aberration correction with the built-in
functions of the 5D3? or do everything in post processing? What about sharpening too?

Cheers Brian

Question from a Canon noob.

My 5D3 is my first DSLR and first Canon camera.  I'm curious, what is the recommendation with regard to firmware updates?

If I have no need for any of the 'fixes' that are listed in this firmware, is it best to just blow off the firmware update, and perhaps wait for one that comes up with new features?

Are successive firmware updates comprehensive...ie, I don't do this one...the next one will have these updates plus the new ones....

Just from my background, I usually try to avoid firmware updates, unless they are necessary...too easy to bork something messing with firmware depending on the type of unit....

Thanks in advance,

cayenne

Just curious cayenne, when has canon EVER released a firmware that "broke" something?

At worst, they fix it quickly with another.

It doesn't do those things in-cam for RAWs only for jpgs and movies.

Well, if you reread my post, this 5D3 is my first dslr and first brush with Canon....hence my questions...

I'm not sure if this was present before the new firmware but I've only noticed this after updating to the new firmware.
When using Orientation linked AF point, for example if I select 'Manual Selection: 1 pt AF', turn the camera to shoot a portrait and select a point in the corner then change to 'Expand AF area', turn the camera to shoot a portrait it will go back to the same point but in 'Manual selection: 1 pt AF' even though I've changed to 'Expand AF area'.
I've tried to explain this as simple as I can, hope someone understands what I'm trying to say.
And just want to know has it always been that way?

The camera saves your AF settings for each orientation it is in (3 of them all). So, if I have single AF point in Portrait Left but AF expansion in Landscape it keeps them while turning the device. The Pre-selected point keeps the selection of the main point, i.e. if main is expanded then the pre-selected is expanded too and vice versa. At least this is what mine does before updating. I won't update the firmware this time as there is no point of doing it if I don't own the 40 and operate in English.

So much for the exciting CR2.
lame!

They can't type one number and give a freakin working autoiso under 1 series level when every other make does it at their low, low end and has for years?

Hopefully this is just a quick temp release and 1.1.4 is coming and they can add the absolutely basics of zebras, focus peaking, crop modes, higher bitrates to video.

lol. good luck with that. canon needs to protect their profitable cinema line.
