Mine went w/o incident and but the date/time/TZ back.. surprisingly more of my settings were all kept.

This is because there is a new feature for changing the time zone. Since the camera doesn't know where it is, that will need to be set. Canon describes that in their description of features in the new firmware.

Another successful update over here. Literally took a total of 5 minutes. Shot a burst, changed pants.

I've NEVER had to use a 20+ shot burst in my day to day shooting but it's nice to know it's there if I ever need it.

I just tried to see how many large jpg files I could shoot, I stopped at about 140, my poor shutter count. :D

Just installed mine as well. One feature I like is being able to change the video shooting mode from the live view window by pressing the Q button. Sure beats digging into the menu screens. Of course, being able to set the audio levels manually makes digging into the menus worthwhile. Woo-woo!!

Even the old firmware would shoot large jpg forever.

Remember new burst length is with UDMA6&7 cards only...

I just ripped off a 24 shot raw file burst of a television program.. Its cool to scroll them back fast in review, it looks like a mini video.

Just got mine done too! Worked great! Thanks Canon for the upgrade :D. I really like the Auto ISO max feature. I am still fairly new to this and it seems like this might be a good feature for me until I become more comfortable with the new Camera. I am sure I wont be using the in camera Raw processing etc.. I have LR for that stuff. But he burst increase will be awesome for my BIF images.

It's something I never tried so I was pretty impressed. I use 2 16GB UDMA6 cards, not sure I need to upgrade them with this kind of performance....
