We seem to be running out of time for this firmware update to come earlier than August 18th, and rumors elsewhere are showing August 19th as the likely release day.

Yep, just got my RF Macro 100, figure it was going to be around the FW release

I was hoping so too. Would be nice to get full compatibility for lenses released over a month ago. But since this firmware update is mostly video oriented, again, it's unlikely to offer me any meaningful improvements as a stills shooter.

I am doubtful, normally by now it would be on one of the other global sites (I normally check Canon Singapore) and so far nothing.

Hope I am wrong.
CanonUSA youtube told me the 18th last month but on here some guy found something that claims the 19th....

Great Scott, now I notice that Canon Australia this month was calling for the R5 FW release sometime in the Winter. The plot thickens hahahahaha. Oh well, guess my V+ might be going on the shelf for awhile. Hopefully not ... :rolleyes:

The EOS R5 update will be available in Winter 2021, introducing compatibility to a range of Canon’s Cine servo zoom lenses, and making external full frame 8K ProRes RAW and 5K cropped ProRes RAW recording possible when connected to the Atomos Ninja V+ recorder and 5K cropped ProRes RAW recording with the Atomos Ninja V recorders.

Of course in Oz, it's "Winter 2021" now. (I point this out for people Up Over who might have forgotten how the seasons work Down Under.)

Nice, I had to look that up, so Winter 2021 ends on Aug 31, you've given me hope again that maybe we will see the FW release this week.
