1.2.1 loaded and ready to go!

1.2.0 seems reality now (1.2.1 release notes refer to 1.2.0), and that happened within a week of OP; but hopefully we should not hold our breath on 1.3.0 and 60D yet. There is a difference between a wild guess / far fetched rumor and something that sounds quite plausible - though classifying those may be an ability in itself

I've been hoping Canon would quietly address the vertical banding issue that seems to cause a lot of anxiety for some 7D users. This update seems a little odd to me, not to sound paranoid or anything like that. They just started shipping 1.2.0 firmware and already found/corrected a problem with it. I'm sure there are going to be quite a few members testing the new firmware to see if the banding issue changes.

I was also curious about the rumors of supporting some new accessories & lenses but that doesn't show up in the official release notes.
