Canon RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM firmware update

As Canon promised, they quickly delivered a firwmare fix for the problem with the Canon RF 70-200mm F2.8 IS USM.  If you were unaware, we were first to start watching this problem unfold in december.  The lens exhibited problems when trying to focus close to the minimum focus distance.

Canon quickly responded, and promised a firmware fix in January, and we're happy to announce that it's available now.

From Canon;

Firmware Version 1.0.6 incorporates the following fix:

・Fixed a phenomenon when performing AF shooting to capture a subject at close-range with the focus distance approximately set to the Tele-end (200mm), the image may become slightly front-focused.

This firmware update is for lenses equipped with firmware versions 1.0.5 or earlier. If the lens's firmware is already version 1.0.6, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

The version of the lens's firmware can be checked in the camera menu.
