Canon 60D firmware update V1.09??
Mar 29, 2011

Based on the following information from Canon USA, would you update your camera firmware beyond version 1.08?

I see no reason if you do not have or intend to buy any of the lenses listed. So does updating to just have the latest and greatest firmware make any sense at this time?

I see where a couple of people have "bricked" their 60D cameras already, I wonder if they needed this update or if they are stuck in "early-adopter mode".

Quoting Canon:

With some lenses, the peripheral AF points may become sensitive to either > vertical or horizontal lines (they will not function as cross-type AF points).

These lenses are: EF 35-80mm f/4-5.6, EF 35-80mm f/4-5.6 II, EF > 35-80mm f/4-5.6 III, EF 35-80mm f/4-5.6 USM, EF 35-105mm f/4.5-5.6, > EF 35-105mm f/4.5-5.6 USM, EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II, EF80-200 f/4.5-5.6 USM.
