There was some interesting talk about what it improves (better metering and handling of hilights, along with lower noise in 400ISO) but that is all speculation.

I look forward to the official anouncement.

Let's see, so far the people who installed this a day before Canon really released it have reported that it:
- improves AF
- improves metering
- reduces "blow out"
- speeds up start-up time
- reduces high ISO noise
- provides sharper images

wishful thinking?


The Canon BeBit site now lists the changes to the firmware:

1. It increases the reliability of USB communication when used with the camera direct print.
* When an image file with a large capacity is printed with the camera direct, printing may stop halfway.

2. It corrects wrong simplified Chinese letters on MENU.
* Some simplified Chinese letters were found to be wrong.

that's this, it only fixed 2 things: chinese language and direct printing from the camera. I don't think I will waiste my time doing this up-grade. I don't need to read the chinese language, and I never print picture direct from the camera any way, but again, who would do that if you own a 10D? holly marco...
