This firmware allows compatibility with Canon’s in-camera Lens Aberration Correction function to enable correction matching the optical characteristics of each lens. It also corrects the phenomenon that abnormal images appear or operation errors occur when the function is enabled. This firmware also corrects the phenomenon whereby the continuous shooting speed decreases in certain combinations with some cameras when used with the 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM | Art for Canon, and the phenomenon whereby the AF speed occasionally becomes unstable when used with the 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary for Canon.
For customers who own the SIGMA USB DOCK and applicable products listed below, please update the firmware via SIGMA Optimization Pro.

The-Digital-Picture has completed their review of the brand new Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II.
From the Review:
… Full frame f/4 results from the II are impressively sharp from corner to corner over the entire focal length range. Stopping down the aperture does not improve sharpness and no improvements are needed. Describing the image sharpness of a high-performing lens is simple. That makes my job easier and the results are very fun to look at.
… Need a light, compact, high-quality telephoto zoom lens? Most kits do and telephoto zoom lenses do not get much better than this one. The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM Lens is one that everyone can find uses for, none will tire of holding, a significant percentage of photographers can afford and I expect all will be extremely happy with the image quality this one produces. This is simply a great little lens. Your kit will be better with this lens in it! Read the full review
The Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II is in stock and shipping from Adroama.

We’re told that photo gear related announcements from Canon will be coming the first week of September, it is expected that Canon will announce at least one mirrorless camera.
Other product announcements are also expected around the same time leading into Photokina, which begins September 26, 2018.
The full frame mirrorless camera from Canon is being described as an “EOS 5D Mark IV in a mirrorless body” internally by at least one retail insider. We think we’re going to get more than a mirrorless version of a two year old camera.
