What happens to "Ive decided if it aint broke dont mend it:)"?

Since there is a firmware update, it is broken. Or they wouldn't have bothered making the update.

Well "something" in the firmware is broke, but it could be a very seldom used, or very obfuscated function that affects few people. If a person never uses the wireless WFT unit for example, then the camera "ain't broke" for that person. ;)

Yeah, I kept mine at 2.0.3, just on the odd chance I might want to fool with Magic Lantern sometime.

I remember that there were a LOT of people complaining about the camera "Freezing-Up"(turning into a paperweight) when the camera went to sleep and having to remove the battery to get it to start working again when 2.0.0 first came out.

That depends. If someone has to ask this:

Hmm how do i go about that is it complicated/can anything go wrong/ and do i really need it:confused:

I'm sure he wasn't having any problem with his camera or the problem didn't affect his camera.

I stayed with 2.0.3 and use Magic Lantern occasionally. I have never seen any issues from not upgrading to 2.0.5. Your mileage may vary!

Just because you haven't run into a problem doesn't mean it's not there. I know of some error that was corrected in a 7D firmware update, but I hadn't happen to use the camera in a way so that I even had noticed the problem.

But it was still there, and perhaps I would have run into it some day, if they hadn't fixed it.

Admittedly, the severity of the problem is much different, but I wouldn't drive a car with faulty brakes just because I don't have to stop right now... ;)
