The firmware release date is April 30, 2013 according to the Canon USA website (5d iii product page at bottom of "overview").

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

happens all the time

Unless you have connections HeheHe

HeheHe indeed lol.

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.

please share

PM me your email address..

thank you

Yep, works great with 100-400mm and Canon EF 1.4x II converter.  Walked out the door and shot the picture below handheld at F8, 1/125, ISO 800.  Im pleased.

Whose TC?
In reply to wa2n, Apr 26, 2013

Very nice. May I ask whose TC you used? Canon's? If so, which version? If someone else's, whose?

I have been using (occasionally) a non-reporting Kenko 1.4 TC. It works with the current 5D3 firmware because it is non-reporting, but the images are not that good so I don't use it much. Your image is very, very nice and it might be worth getting a new TC if I knew which one you used.

Thanks.

This thing is floating across the internet like wild fire now.  Personally, I am going to wait for official channels, but the MD5 sum of the copy I located is below:

$ gpg --print-md md5 5D300121.FIR
5D300121.FIR: 3C AB 84 0C D3 D4 CF 17  5B 5B 4E 0E A5 14 EB A9
