At first I thought this was a joke, too good to be true. These are by far the most significant firmware updates I've seen on a dSLR body that I've owned. Color me excited!

dont get confused with download not being there for mountain lion :P

I was at first... but you may actually simply download the version for Lion as the setup can be made from the CF card. The update process takes only a few minutes and the firmware seems to work properly, had no problem so far with it! :)

You're right, updating from the CF card works like charm. The update works great but actually missing the switching between AF versions (spot AF, zone AF etc.) with the M-Fn key... Seems to be gone

Can't you change the key assignment through the menus? This would be VERY BAD if they killed it.

The Canon 7D User Manual has also been updated, with a 'cheat sheet' showing you what's different in the manual due to the 2.0.0 firmware changes.

Canon please add "Maximum Auto ISO setting" to the 5D2 firmware :)

I wish the audio meters would show as you're recording video. Without a headphone jack, you're still not able to monitor as you shoot. Unless I'm missing something.

My camera is locking up after upgrading the firmware. Anyone else with the same problem?

Have you resolve this issue? Because I'm about to upgarde my 7D onto this software, but I'm gonna wait until everything is fine.
