Firmware Version 1.3.5 is for cameras with Firmware Version 1.3.4 or earlier. If your camera's firmware is already Version 1.3.5, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
When updating the firmware of your camera, please review the instructions thoroughly before you update the firmware.


Preparations for the Firmware Update:

Macintosh
After the downloaded compressed file (.dmg file) is extracted, a firmware folder is created.

*Extracting the downloaded file:
The downloaded folder is automatically extracted, and a firmware folder is created. If the download folder cannot be automatically extracted, double-click the folder.

The extracted folder contains the firmware (file name: 5D300135.FIR / file size: 17,975,776 bytes) and instructions on the firmware update procedures (a PDF file in five languages: Japanese, English, French, Spanish, and Simplified Chinese). 

Before starting the firmware update operations, please confirm the contents of the download, and carefully read through the firmware update procedures.

Notes:
- Once the EOS 5D Mark III camera is updated to Version 1.3.3 (or later), it cannot be restored to a previous firmware Version (Version 1.0.7 through 1.2.3). 

- It is recommended that the latest application software*1 be used, once the EOS 5D Mark III is updated to the new firmware Version 1.2.0 (or later) from older firmware (Versions 1.0.7 through 1.1.3). Certain previous versions of these applications do not support functions which are added by the new firmware. 

- In order to use EOS Utility software with the updated EOS 5D Mark III, the EOS Utility software must be updated to the latest version. 

You can download the latest application software from our Web site.
*1: EOS Utility Version 2.12.11 or later (Supported OSes: Windows 7 / 7 SP1 / VistaSP2 / XP SP3, Mac OS X v10.6 / 10.7)
*1: Digital Photo Professional Version 3.12.52 or later (Supported OSes: Windows 7 / 7 SP1 / Vista SP2 / XP SP3, Mac OS X v10.6 / 10.7)

When cameras, or images taken with cameras, have been updated to the new Firmware Version 1.2.0 (or later), and are used with the old version application software*2, the following phenomena will occur. 
*2: EOS Utility
- The "HDMI output" function, "HDMI output setting" or "HDMI output frame rate setting" cannot be registered to My Menu of the camera. 
- The lens aberration compensation data cannot be registered to the camera.
*2: Digital Photo Professional
- If the Lens Aberration Correction Window is chosen when working with a RAW image taken with a camera running Firmware Version 1.2.0 (or later), the adjustment window will automatically shut down and the adjustment (correction) cannot be made.

- Due to the differences in the camera firmware versions, the following phenomena will occur.*3
*3: RAW images taken with a Firmware Version 1.2.0 (or later) camera cannot be processed on cameras with Firmware Version 1.1.3 or before.
*3: When images taken with a camera running Firmware Version 1.2.0 (or later), are read by a camera running Firmware Version 1.1.3 or older, Direct print is not possible.

- Accompanying the enhancements to the functions, the instruction manual has also been revised. Users are asked to download both the latest firmware and the instruction manual. You can download the latest instruction manual from our Web site.

Two New Canon RF Mount Lenses Launched

Canon RF15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens
New Canon RF Mount Lenses Bring Optical Excellence to Pro and Advanced Amateur Photographers

RF15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM and RF24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM Lenses Further Cement the Company’s Commitment to the EOS R Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera System

MELVILLE, NY, August 28, 2019 – The time has come and the wave of momentous advancements in the world of the EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera system continues as Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the introduction of the RF15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM and RF24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM lenses. With their large, bright F2.8 aperture, a zoom range that covers a wide range of shooting scenes and image stabilization (IS), as well as Nano USM – these lenses are sure to become workhorse lenses for professional and advanced amateur photographers.

“As the emergence of mirrorless cameras continue accelerating the market and with Canon’s deeply rooted heritage in optics, we are excited to expand the lens offerings and acquiesce the needs of EOS R users,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The technical improvements and features within these new RF lenses are needed to drive the market forward.”

Canon RF15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens
RF15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM
As Canon’s first F2.8 wide zoom lens equipped with IS for full-frame with a CIPA standard of five stops, the RF15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens is furnished with edge-to-edge sharpness throughout the zoom range to capture clear images with high image clarity from the center of the image throughout the entire focal range. Speaking of focal range, the RF15-35mm is an ultra wide range that allows for broader photographic expression with more emphasis on perspective. Other components include:
High Image quality has been achieved due to the large diameter mount and shorter back focus of the EOS R system.
Total size of the lens is equivalent to the existing EF lens, but allows for IS, wider field of view and the control ring indicative of the RF lenses.
Drip and dust resistant and ideal for landscape, architecture, nature, sports and portrait photography needs.

Canon RF24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM Lens
RF24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM
Created for a wide range of shooting scenarios from street scene snapshots to movie shooting, the RF24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM lens remains portable while equipped with IS. Other components include:
Equivalent to the size of the EF counterpart but with Image Stabilization.
High speed and high precision Nano USM motor for accurate, silent focus operation for stills and moving shooting.
Takes moving shooting into account with focus breathing suppression during manual focus operation, sensitivity setting during MF operation, usage of the focus ring is adjustable and customization of the control ring to assign aperture, shutter speed, ISO speed and exposure compensation as desired.

Free Firmware Update
In addition, a new, free downloadable firmware update will be released in late September for the EOS R system. Those interested can download the update for their respective system via the EOS R and EOS RP support pages. The update will improve three main functions:
Eye detection AF
AF frame display delay
Subject identification

The firmware update aims to add detection of the subject’s eye when the subject is at a distance, improve overall AF frame tracking for moving subjects, as well as improve initial subject recognition and start tracking when subjects are at a distance.

Pricing and Availability
The Canon RF15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM and RF24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM lenses are both scheduled to be available in late September 2019 for an estimated retail price of $2,299.00* each. To complete the trinity of F2.8 lenses, the RF70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM lens is scheduled to be shipping within the second half of 2019 – stay tuned!
