    for the cool 40D owners:

    What has changed in Version 1.1.1?

    The following fixes and improvements have been incorporated.

    1. Fixes a malfunction that in rare occurrence causes a low battery indication to be displayed when using the EF 85mm F1.2L II USM lens. Depending on the battery check timing of the camera, the battery level displayed on the camera's LCD data panel may shows Battery will be exhausted soon or Battery must be recharged, even though the battery capacity is sufficient.
    This phenomenon may occur only when using the EF 85mm F1.2L II USM lens in combination with the EOS 40D and does not occur with other cameras and lenses.

    2. Fixes a malfunction that in rare occurrence causes an Err 06 Self Cleaning Sensor malfunction to appear on the camera's LCD monitor and LCD data panel, even when the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit is operating normally. This message may appear depending on the timing of when the camera is switch to the ON position.

    3. Fixes a malfunction that prevents correct colors from being printed when direct printing. RAW images captured using the camera's custom Picture Styles (Emerald, etc.), which have been downloaded from Canon's Web site and registered under User Def. 2 or User Def. 3.
    The raw image data captured under the above conditions does not have any problems. This phenomenon only occurs during direct printing.

    4. Modifies the level of subject brightness that causes the AF-assist beam to fire when using an external Speedlite.
    The AF-assist beam of the external Speedlite fires even when the brightness of external light does not require it.

    D3:
    The following improvements have been made in version 2.01

    - Geodetic information is now displayed in ViewNX Ver. 1.2.0 or later and Capture NX 2 Ver. 2.1.0 or later for images captured with the GPS Unit GP-1 mounted on the camera.
    - Autofocus-response performance in focus mode C (Continuous-servo AF mode) with relatively dark subjects has been increased.
    - When the AF-ON button is pressed, the monitor turns off and a focus point can now be selected using the multi selector.

    - Photo information displayed in full-frame playback has been modified as follows:
    HI-, LO- has been changed to Hi, Lo
    WARM TONE has been changed to WARM FILTER
    COLOR CUSTOM has been changed to COLOR BALANCE


    - Manamah, displayed in the Time zone options for the World time item in the setup menu, has been changed to Manama.
    - An issue that, in extremely rare cases, resulted in noticeable black dots in images captured with Long exp. NR in the shooting menu set to On has been resolved.
    - When the Speedlight SB-800 was mounted on the camera with flash mode set to Distance-priority manual (GN) mode, and then the exposure meters were reactivated or the camera was turned on, the distance information displayed on the SB-800 changed. This issue has been resolved.
    - An issue that, in some rare cases, caused images captured with the following lenses to be under-exposed, has been resolved.
    AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED
    AF VR Zoom-Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED (5.0x)

    D700:
    The following improvements have been made in version 1.01

    - When Custom Setting a4 Focus tracking with lock-on was set to Off in Continuous-servo AF, the lens drive moved gradually without achieving focus. This issue has been resolved.
    - When the Speedlight SB-800 was mounted on the camera with flash mode set to Distance-priority manual (GN) mode, and then the exposure meters were reactivated or the camera was turned on, the distance information displayed on the SB-800 changed. This issue has been resolved.
    - When the Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10 was mounted on the camera and an EN-EL3e battery inserted in the camera but no batteries inserted in the MB-D10, and SB-900 flash mode set to TTL auto flash mode, the flash mode changed to A mode when the exposure meters turned off or were reactivated, or the camera was turned off or on. This issue has been resolved. (This issue has also been resolved with SB-900 firmware Ver. 5.02.)
    - An issue that, in extremely rare cases, resulted in noticeable black dots in images captured with Long exp. NR in the shooting menu set to On has been resolved.
    - Manamah, displayed in the Time zone options for the World time item in the setup menu, has been changed to Manama.
