Just came back from my LCS and they updated my 5D3 to ver. 1.2.1 Gave me a copy on flashdrive.

Haven't played much with it yet but I can confirm the Autofocus with a EF100-400 plus a 1.4x converter works like a charm.

Hello 5DMkIII Shooter

Is it possible for you to upload the firmware to dropbox or something other in the cloud?

Looking forward to hear from you.

Regards'

Marc

Hi There,

you could use https://www.wetransfer.com , and copy the link in here. That would make it easy for everybody to download

Thanks

Andrew...

Sorry to say the AF does not illuminate. I would have loved to seen that fixed as well.

As a side note: the problem i took it in for was not fixed either. It will go back, and i'm debating whether to be polite about it or not.

Thanks, that's a shame.

Hope you get your camera fixed.

Andrew

I think camera's are quite often shipped with the latest FW before the updates are widely available.

Mine has 007..... and has now a shutterspeed of 1/16000. I'll wait for another week, I don't have f/8 lenses and I don't shoot in the dark.

Aww man - just joined up on the forums to ask another question about some lenses...but this is quite a carrot dangle!  Any chance I could PM you my address and have it sent too?  Really looking forward to this fw release!
