Firmware: Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro v2.0.0

Canon has released new firmware for the RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro.

Firmware Version 2.0.0 incorporates the following enhancement:

  • Support for the “panning” scene mode with the EOS RP has been added. The “panning” scene mode reduces subject blurring and blurs the background when the lens is mounted to the EOS RP.

This firmware update is for lenses equipped with firmware version older than 2.0.0. If the lens firmware is already Version 2.0.0, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

The version of the lens firmware can be checked on the camera menu.

Can I ask a stupid question, how do you update a lens?

I remember the superteles had to be shipped to Canon, but understand that that isn’t the case anymore. Do one use the normal firmware update menu, or how is it done?

That would make it kind of hard to update the RF 35 then:LOL:

I updated the RF 24-105 a couple of days ago. I downloaded from Canon, and the download consisted of pdf-installation guides in different languages, and the actual firmware file. I dropped the firmware file onto the SD card (which first was formatted in the camera). When you go to the “firmware section” in the camera menu, you can view the firmware version for both the camera and the lens that is attached. The camera will notice it if you have the update-file on the SD card, and it will ask if you want to update the firmware of the lens. Make sure you have enough power on the battery, and then go. I estimate it took 2-3 minutes to complete the firmware update.

The camera warns you to not touch any buttons or turn off the power during the installation, so one should be careful.

Thanks, excellent that means the R can be used for lens firmware and the rest is exactly the same as camera firmware. Typical seamless Canon (y)
