Hey guys...I am saying farewell...sold my mark3 body and have returned to the mark 2's...honestly...I don't miss the 3 at all...but
then I am not generally shooting jumping dogs, etc. The file quality actually seems a little smoother on the 2...at least up to
1600 iso. I have put a bid on a 1ds mark3...I think this might be the camera for me for a while. good luck and I will stay up
to date and see what happens on this forum

Can I ask how shortly we might expect to hear about a release date? Are we expecting this fireware update, with the April release for the HDMI out, or will there be two seperate updates?
I'm just wanting to know some sort of time frame...

Forgot to say Stephen, Canon has restored my faith as at least you are listening. I'm sure you get feedback from the masters like Syl Arena to mention one that more than likely helps the cause. I could be wrong and perhaps these forums were the key to the fix. Either way good news.
The 5D2 is an excellent body but I wanted the Pro AF. That last upgrade was not inexpensive (none of them are) and I was not thrilled when I learned abou this.
