Re: Which region to download 7D 2.0FW? Please help.

You can download the firmware update from any regional Canon site. The firmware is the same, while the available languages are hard coded in the camera depending on intended market.

You cannot actually turn a Japanese 7D (with Japanese and English as the only options) to, say, a German one with a firmware update.

I was told by my Canon repair guy that it is possible to replace the part (I assume the main logic board) controlling the available languages but the cost was equal to a good lens or a second camera body.
