I did and it works just fine... I guess the UK just released it early, so they pulled it. It should be out shortly (supposedly)

Q: What are the changes in Firmware Version 1.2.5?
A: The following improvements and fixes have been incorporated.
1. Fixed a phenomenon in which there were rare cases where movie files taken could not be opened when repeatedly shooting movies with specific CF cards.
2. Fixed a phenomenon in which there were cases where "Err 02" appeared when repeatedly shooting still images with specific CF cards.
3. Fixed a phenomenon that occurred when using high-capacity (32 GB or greater) CF cards: If either a CF card with only a little available space remaining or the battery was removed and then reinserted into the camera, and then the user attempted to start shooting movies immediately, shooting would stop.
4. Improved the writing/reading speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards.
The reading/writing speeds are the same as those for UDMA 6 CF cards.
5. Fixed a phenomenon that occurred when custom function C.Fn 4-1 was set to assign IS start to the AF stop button on the lens: When used with lenses that do not have an AF stop button, the IS function would not work.
6. Corrected some mistakes in the menu screens displayed in Arabic and Portuguese.
(Only for products that come with Arabic or Portuguese menus)

Ok im hoping this will fix the corrupt data files I get when taking some pictures and video. It does say it fixes the video files but not the RAW image files. Will find out soon enough.

As far as I know the update was never pulled, just the link to it was removed.

And it was removed from the UK site. This is the US one, even though it points to the same file.

I think the Canon UK site put up the link to the file a bit early last week (the wrong Tuesday??).
Or maybe they were trying to get it released in good time before 'the wedding' :rolleyes:

With all the "rare phenomenon" that my 7D apparently has I think it needs an exorcism, not a firmware update.
