Very annoying to have to send our very expensive lenses... These lens firmware updates have to be possible via bodies like an ordinary body firmware update...

Although I remain unaffected, so far, I agree. The lens FW should be upgradable by the consumer. I am sure Canon would like to implement this too, if they can. Besides the inconvenience to the user each lens needing to be upgraded costs Canon money (shipping, labor, etc.). I am sure they realize this and will implement this where and when they can.

I started in the 50's - my first picture was taken with a Leica and hooked me for life. I no longer use my Leicas, but I am still taking pictures. Some things never change.
