I am not seeing these updates on the Canon USA website. Do we know when Canon USA will release the updates? Please advise.

Thank you,

Wow, so their IBIS will be even better then what we have seen in available samples on YT which are already very very good.

Interesting. I really hope it helps fix some of the issues with the warping/wobble w/ the 15-35mm. (Case in point, peter mckinnon's recent vlog is almost unwatchable). I have the R5 +15-35 on pre-order so a bit important to me.

*edit: I do realize that UWA + IBIS has a tendency to be like this in alot of setups, but this is the most severe i've seen.

How does one update the firmware on a lens? Does Canon have a dock I need to buy like with the Sigma lenses?

Put the .FIR file on the card, put card in camera, go to the 'firmware update' in the spanner menu, select the lens and follow the instructions on the screen.

And Canon covers it in the PDF they include in the update package.

You just copy the firmware update file(s) on the root directory of the sd card and then you choose firmware update on camera. It can update either the camera and/or the lens firmware

Not an EOS R5 owner in the near future but even so I have updated my 4 RF lenses. Also, I updated my EOS R. So here is your guinea pig :D
Everything went smoothly!

I don't think that is an issue with the IBIS. That is how IBIS generally looks in the corners of video from very wide angle lenses. As far as I remember mckinnon also reminds himself on not shooting ultrawide video with IBIS.

EXACTLY what I was thinking. It's pretty bad in some of his shots, I'm really looking forward to seeing how much this helps.

Side note, IBIS looks great for photography and a lot of hand held video shots, but I've been really disappointed in how bad it looks in the two vlogs PM has posted using it w/ the 15-35.

I believe IBIS will be very helpful especially when combined with IS lenses like when shooting still subjects in low light situations. So no matter what I say about not getting R5 any time soon, eventually I may get one IBIS R series camera.

Amd I just wonder how a downscaled 45mp image of R5 will compete with the 20mp image of R6 for these low light/high iso situations.

Ah yes, I've seen this using a 12-24 on sony FF and 10-24 on fuji's apsc, but this is by far the most severe i've seen - definetly another level. Although given how bad sony ibis is for video i'm not overly surprised and the fuji does indeed have a smaller sensor, but while sometimes its annoying, its not usually nauseating like this.
