Canon 5D Mark II firmware 2.0.7

Wow, this is totally something i'm not used to. Canon's 5D Mark II has been out for quite a long time, but with it's constant demand, here's another firmware upgrade for additional improvements and fixes. One of the most demanding fixes was the problem initially found after installing the firmware 2.0.4 where the iris of the 100mm Macro lens 'exhibits abnormal movement'. Yeah I ran into that same problem doing video mode until I upgraded to the 100mm Macro IS USM lens. Glad to see they got that worked out.

Firmware changes
This firmware update (Version 2.0.7) incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

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.
These phenomenon only occur with the Version 2.0.4 and Version 2.0.3 firmware.

The Version 2.0.7 firmware being released this time is for cameras with firmware up to Version 2.0.4. If the camera's firmware is already Version 2.0.7, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

One thought on “Canon 5D Mark II firmware 2.0.7

  1. And what about 7D users? I just did a video with my 7D and 100 mm 2,8 macro (not the L series) and I got the exact same problem. Couldn't do any focus pull shots as they were ruined with the iris changing.

    Please Canon, don't forget the 7D!

    Anyone else that can try this on their 7D? Just so that I know that I'm not the only one. Go to video mode and set everything to manual. Start turning the focus ring and you can both see it by looking down in the lens and on the screen, and you can even hear it as it for a brief moment changes the iris slightly.
