2) What reason would Canon have for letting the US Navy know about
this firmware update, as opposed to letting sports news agencies know
about it instead?

I was just wondering the same and think this might have something to do with navy safety procedures regarding any new piece of software entering any equipment used by navy (army and air force as well) must be checked against any spying or otherwise "bad" code insight.

What if navy starts shooting without perfect focus and suddenly the target drags his D3 gear and shoots the navy service man first ?
