This is great news for owners of Canon EOS 5D cameras as it allows the use of CF cards greater than 8GB for the first time.

Further information from Canon’s website:

The following fixes and improvements have been incorporated:

  1. It now supports high-capacity CF cards.

Previously, when using an 8GB CF card or greater (e.g.,12GB, 16GB), even after initializing the card in the camera, the CF card capacity could not correctly be detected.

This phenomenon has been fixed so that the camera will correctly recognize high-capacity CF cards.

  1. It allows the latest lens names to be recorded in the Exif information of images taken.

The lens IDs of lenses released after EOS5D are not in the camera; so these lens names could not be recorded in the Exif information of images.
The lens IDs for the follwing new lenses are now included, so that the correct lens names will be recorded in the Exif information of images.

-EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM *1)

-EF 50mm f/1.2L USM *1)

-EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM *2)

-EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM *1)

The correct lens names for the lenses above marked *1) will be recorded in the Exif information of images.

The lens marked *2) has been added, if the firmware is version 1.1.0 or later.

  1. Lenses that are compatible with the Digital Photo Professional 3.2 lens aberration correction function have been added.

More lenses will be supported by the lens aberration correction function of Digital Photo Professional 3.2, Canon’s RAW image viewer/editing software.

Specifically, the four lenses listed in item 2 above have been added.In images taken with these lenses and cameras updated to v1.1.1, the lens aberration correction function can be used.

For other supported lenses, see the user manual for DPP 3.2.
