Canon 5D Mark II firmware 2.0.7 released

A quick heads-up for 5d Mark II shooters: there's a new (seemingly minor) firmware update out there. Of the three listed fixes, the only one that piques my interest is the first:

  1. Fixes a phenomenon in which the aperture exhibits abnormal movement when shooting movies in manual exposure mode and Aperture Priority AE (Av mode) using some Canon lenses (such as macro lenses).
  2. Fixes a phenomenon in which the exposure level shown in the LCD panel differs from what is shown in the viewfinder when shooting still images in manual exposure mode.
  3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the Wireless File Transmitter (WFT-E4 or WFT-E4 II) may not automatically power off when used for FTP transfers.

I'm pretty sure I've experienced the first issue, although there are a wide range of opinions out there as to what exactly has been causing this intermittent, inexplicable flickering on movies. Click on through to the Canon Japan site for the full details.
