AFAIK, the following is what they are updating:

✔ Uncompressed HDMI Output Support
When shooting video, HDMI Output makes possible the recording of high-definition uncompressed video data (YCbCr 4:2:2, 8 bit) from the EOS 5D Mark III to an external recorder via the camera’s HDMI terminal.

✔ This enhanced capability facilitates the editing of video data with minimal image degradation for greater on-site workflow efficiency during motion picture and video productions.

✔ Video being captured can be displayed on an external monitor, enabling real-time, on-site monitoring of high-definition video during shooting.

✔ Improved AF Functionality – Even when the EOS 5D Mark III is equipped with an extender and lens making possible a maximum aperture of f/8, the firmware update supports AF employing the camera’s central cross-type points (currently compatible with maximum apertures up to f/5.6).

✔ This firmware update will allow users to take advantage of AF when shooting distant subjects, benefitting sports and nature photographers, particularly when using telephoto lenses.

Word on the street is that "Canon 5D Mark III firmware update will also come packed with several bug fixes. One of them will allow the camera to focus faster when using the Speedlight AF Assist Beam, while other details remain unknown for now".

Just to report on the latest firmware 1.2.1 for 5D3, looks like it's no longer able to detect the 3rd party LP-E6 battery level anymore.

When I put my 3rd party LP-E6 (bought from eBay) into the camera, there's a warning screen that says:

Communication with Canon LP-E6 battery is Irregular. Continue to use this battery?

If I choose Cancel, the camera will turn off instantly. If I choose OK, the camera will turn on & run as normal, but the battery level will stay at 100% all the time & I can no longer register nor delete the serial number.

This is kinda bummer for me as I just bought 18 DSTE-branded LP-E6s & I'm expecting it to arrive next week. If the DSTE-branded LP-E6s can't show the battery level, I'll be very disappointed.

Anyone else have this problem as well?

Installed and running. The HDMI signal from the camera is showing no overlays and image is edge to edge on a 1920x1080 TV. It was nice to find the new "Mirroring" menu option. In the pic below, the camera is connected to the monitor and the LCD remains on. When I press record, both stay on, however the red recording dot only showed up on the camera LCD.

It's not officially available anywhere yet, but there are unofficial copies floating around the internet.

It works fine.

I can't say that the video looks any better using an external recorder though :( for still scenes. I'll see what happens with leaves blowing around in dark shadows or something, maybe it will make that sort of thing look better.

70-300L + kenko extension tube still focuses horribly badly. I will try it with a kenko 1.4x soon, hopefully that will be a go now.

I don't like to use flash much and I only have a cheap sunpak so I can't test the flash assist AF thing.
Well actually I do have the macro ring flash, for macro I often use flash, but that isn't a normal speedlight.
