    Firmware Update Version 1.0.7 improves and mitigates the following two types
    of image quality phenomena that occur under certain shooting conditions.

    1. "Black dot" phenomenon (the right side of point light sources become
    black)
    2. Vertical banding noise

    Firmware Version 1.0.7 is for EOS 5D Mark II cameras with firmware up to
    version 1.0.6. If the camera's firmware is already version 1.0.7, it is not
    necessary to update the firmware.

    Notes:
    When updating to Firmware Version 1.0.7, please also update the Digital
    Photo Professional and Picture Style Editor software.

    That figures...
    How many beta testers paid money for 'em?

    Looks like they might have done pretty well with the dots (although this
    is just one small example):

    Wonder how they went with the banding..?

  4. [Canon fixes 5DII 2 blemishes which only occur in rare and
    well known circumstances]
    .... says the person using
    X-Newsreader: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2900.5512
    , probably the most broken, buggy program *ever* used to post to
    usenet, certainly the most embarassingly broken and dysfunctional
    one if we ignore programs used by less than 30 people. Produced by
    a company where BETA is reached when service pack 2 comes out.

    And unless I miss my guess, D-Mac uses Windows --- the most buggy
    security desaster on the whole internet, made by a company that
    only attempts to fix holes (not always successfully, either) after
    someone has successfully exploited the hole and shown them how.[1]

    Tell me, D-Mac of the invalid enmail address in Nigeria --- I
    should probably get me "this.ng" and (completely legally and above
    board) cancel each and every single post you make from then *my*
    email address! --- tell me, D-Mac of the funny name --- did
    your parents really give you that name? Sue them for
    cruelty! --- tell me, D-Mac the hypocrite, pray tell me, do
    you have the good grace to become beet-red, caught again?

    Or do you have a secret agenda again, Tartuffe? (Don't look
    it up, you might learn something!)

    Or do you simply need the money so bad that becoming a
    laughing stock doesn't look so bad?


    Well?

    -Wolfgang

    [1] It used to be even worse: You had to tell the whole world,
    publically ---- and thus every cracker and computer criminal,
    too --- how to exploit the bug, so that public pressure would
    force Microsoft to start fixing the problem. Of course,
    the hole got exploited badly everywhere. But not forcing
    microsoft just left the hole there to be discovered by someone
    less principled than you.
    Just not telling anyone that the barn door isn't locked did
    never prevent thieves from absconding with the horses.
