| p.6 #18 · Canon 5D Mark III firmware update in April 30th 2013! |
f/8 AF is working great. I tried it with the 100-400 and 1.4TCIII and it is a lot better than when I tried just taping the pins on the TC before. I also tried the 600II and the 2.0TCIII ..... fast, fast. I'm happy. Just wish I could have more than the centre point but I'm not complaining.
Only one small issue with my update...after the update the camera said it couldn't recognize the battery. It reads the percentage and charge performance but not the serial number and it can't be registered. I have 5 LP-E6 batteries and 2 out...Show more →
Is it only the center point??. I thought i read the canon press release saying all cross points supporting 5.6 which would make it 21 in total.
From canon Press release
"Even when the EOS 5D Mark III is equipped with an extender and lens making possible a maximum aperture of f/8, the firmware update supports AF employing the camera's central cross-type points (currently compatible with maximum apertures up to f/5.6). Accordingly, the update will allow users to take advantage of AF when shooting distant subjects, benefitting sports and nature photographers, particularly when using telephoto lenses."
