I was about to update my firmware but before I did, I tried if I have AF problem like everyone does. So I pushed the barrel while my 60D was turned off and I was surprised that the AF on 40mm was working fine. I even tried it 3 times. I guess I have a good copy and don't need that update anyway.  :)

I've yet to have a problem, so I'll be waiting for the next version of the firmware before upgrading.

Mine updated no issues using 5D MK3 running latest firmware.

I always download files off the Internet using FireFox on my Mac (10.8).
Safari can corrupt files, especially firmware.
I always use the SD card and turn off the other CF card and take it out of the camera.

Just out of curiosity, for all those that are having issue updating the firmware, did you pre-order your 40mm? I'm wondering if this issue has to do with earlier releases of the lens. I pre-ordered mine and I'm having this update issue.

Great! Finally it worked. The problem should just be the battery. I tried with another battery, 100% charged, and it worked! The Lens now work again! File (for Mac) downloaded from the U.S. site with Safari on Lion Mountain. So I do not think it's a matter of the browser or OS. But only of batteriy. I hope I can be of help to someone.
Mine 40 STM is not preordered.

Thanks KenQ!!!

I had a similar experience. Failed several times in the same manner as other people have described here. I then saw your post and tried one of my spare batteries (charged to 100%)... still no go. Finally, I tried my other spare battery, again fully charged, and it work fine.

Very strange. I did buy this lens very soon after they hit the market so I wonder if it is an early shipment that has this issue. I did the upgrade on a 5Dmk3 running firmware 1.1.3

Well I tried the update several times this morning to no success.

I had two fully charged batteries in my grip, latest 5Dm3 firmware and a freshly formatted SDHC card with the firmware for the lens copied over using my Linux development machine. It got to 69% then jumped to 2978% and stayed there for several minutes before I removed the battery magazine. This happened each time I tried to do the updated.

Would love to get it working but also know what the issue is. A firmware update like this should be relatively simple to do technically speaking :(

For people who have problems with the update, try this:

Before put the lens into camera:

- Baterry info -> INFO -> DELETE ALL registered batteries

***** Try with the battery at 100%, fresh from the charger !!! If don´t work try with another freshly charged 100% ******

My case:

5D Mark III v1.1.3 without grip
Canon EF 40mm 2.8 STM ** DEAD **
CF with lens firmware

With my first battery, don´t work (crash, red light, ...)
With my second battery, the same (2698%Done, crash)
With my third battery, WORK !!! DONE !!

I think the problem is firmware check the battery, I don´t know....

Believe it or not….
After deleting the battery info and using a FRESH and different battery (i used an OEM brand one), the update WORKED!
I do think it's the battery info that caused the error…
Well, now we know…so those who have problems..try this method..it worked for me

Since I don't have a 5D3, 1Dx or 650D, is there anybody living near Mechelen (Belgium) who has and is willing to set the firmware on my lens? (I thought I'd ask here before having to go trough the hassle of sending it to canon)

Really?
You need to do all that in order to get the firmware on the lens updated?
That's a heck of a long winded process but if it works I am willing to go through it. I will try it later this evening.

Canon, you really know how to annoy people don't you?

IT WORKED!

I tried deleting all registered batteries and although I didn't have a 100% fully charged battery, I tried a 95% charged one and it updated the lens!

Phew! Was about to send it in tomorrow too!
