won't argue, but statement is not entirely truthful.

So you work for Canon and own two Sigma lenses????

You are a loyal Canon fanboy

Thank you for the compliment, no one has called me a "boy" for over 60 years. :)

Good news, everything continues to go well, had a bit of a scare yesterday when the 500 f/4 refused to AF at all, the answer, put on your reading glasses before you turn off your IS only to find out you turned OFF your AF, ain't getting old great?

1.2.1 for the 5D3 now live at Canon USA (external link). Somehow, they have a couple 1.2.1's for Mac there. Must be a mistake. I know the first selection .dmg downloaded OK. Haven't mounted it yet on the cam.

The ID numbers of the two versions of software they have up there are different.

ID: 0400079906_EN_1
ID: 0400079902_EN_1

I don't know that there is any difference but I down loaded and saved both.

both "leaked" and "official" firmwares are exactly the same file.

1)same file size
2)same modified date of april 8th (date when firmware was done)
3)MD5 checksum is same, meaning both files are identical.

Ya??? How did they fix the battery issues? I downloaded the software this morning from the canon site. It now does not recognize my cheep knock off batteries.

Not that the batteries lasted as long as the OEM Canon ones and the power level meter always took a nose dive after half power. (I know you get what you pay for)

Canon Rumors website has posted a complete list of the upgrades and revisions in the 5D3 1.2.1 Firmware update:


  1. Uncompressed HDMI output is now enabled.
  2. Enables the center AF point to autofocus when the camera is used with Canon EF lens/extender combinations whose combined maximum aperture is f/8.
  3. Improves the speed of the camera’s acquisition of focus when using a Canon Speedlite’s AF-assist beam.
  4. Fixes a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor may freeze and display Err 70 or Err 80 when a still photo is taken during Live View or in movie shooting mode.
  5. Fixes a phenomenon that may occur when the continuous shooting priority setting is enabled for multiple exposures, such that, after the sixth image is taken, there is a slight pause before the remainder of the sequence is completed.
  6. Fixes a phenomenon in which the viewfinder display shows incorrect information during AEB shooting.
  7. Communication with the WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter has been improved.
  8. When images have been successfully transferred with the WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter through the FTP protocol, an “O” will be displayed. When images have not been successfully transferred with the WFT-E7 Wireless File Transmitter through the FTP protocol, an “X” will be displayed.
  9. Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera may not function properly when an Eye-Fi card is used.
  10. Fixes a phenomenon in which the focal length value listed in the Exif information is not displayed correctly for images shot with the EF 24-70mm F4L IS USM lens.
  11. Fixes a phenomenon in which the lens firmware cannot be updated properly.
  12. Corrects errors in the Arabic language menu.
  13. Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera changes the AF microadjustment value to -8.
  14. Fixes a phenomenon in which the on-screen guidance cannot be fully displayed when setting the maximum limit value for the “Setting the ISO Speed Range for Auto ISO” option.
