Canon has released a firmware update for the 5D Mark II. The new firmware version 2.0.9 provides the following updates.
- Improves writing/reading speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards.
- Fixes a phenomenon where the IS function will not work when custom function C.Fn III-2 is set to [5: IS start] and the lens attached does not have an AF stop button. This is because custom function C.Fn III-2 allows users to assign IS start to the AF stop button on the lens
- Corrects misspellings in the menu screens displayed in Arabic, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai languages.
The firmware is not yet available on Canon USA’s site; however, you can find it Canon’s Asia site here.
