When I updated the 1DX firmware to the current version, I noticed the option to update camera FW or lens FW. I have a 300/2.8 L II, for which Canon issued a "recall" a while back so they could update FW affecting AF. I've held off on shipping the lens to them, and wonder now if anyone can offer any information - or even semi-plausible speculation - about whether they are likely to make it possible for us to update the new teles ourselves. Obviously the initial decision was that only Canon service centers could do that, but I wonder if it is because some physical adjustment has to be done at the same time as reprogramming, or simply that some camera bodies cannot perform the update (which the 1DX possibly can).
So, any thoughts or info?
