I installed the new firmware and checked it out briefly but haven't really used it. I haven't used my 7D much since I got my 5D3. Did they change the behaviour of the C modes? I never found them very useful on the 7D because they revert back to the stored setting when the 7D "goes to sleep", or when you change to a different mode. I very much prefer the way the C modes work on the 5D3. If you change any of the settings while shooting in one of the C modes, it retains those setting when it goes to sleep, and it updates the stored C mode setting when you switch modes. I think you can change the way that last part works, so that it doesn't update the stored settings when you change modes, but I prefer to have it update the stored settings.

This is really good news. I've been moaning about this on and off since my 40D, and of course the 7D didn't fix it.
