Re: firmware?

I also do not update firmware unless it corrects a problem or adds a feature I'm interested in, or it's a rainy day and I'm bored. I don't subscribe to the theory that manufacturers hide fixes by including code and not disclosing it. The companies I've worked for the past 30+ years have issued firmware updates, all have disclosed exactly what the updates do.

Best regards,

I also have no qualms about Canon's honesty in saying exactly what firmware updates address. Maybe I'm just lazy, but I'd rather not mess around with something that I personally can mess up ! There is always the (remote ?) possibility that "if it can happen, it will happen" !
