The latest word from Canon Germany is that USM motors and electrical parts are no longer available for all of the pre-1999 Super Telephoto Lenses (the non-IS models), and therefore, these lenses have been removed from Canon Germany CPS service.
 
These models include the 200 f/1.8, 300 f/2.8, 400 f/2.8, 400 f/2.8 II, 500 f/4.5 and 600 f/4.0. (thanks Ralf)
 
Ralf thinks we will see some new, larger lens mugs coming in the near future.

Canon USA's Rudy Winston delivers a series of What's on the Canon EOS 7D Menu videos at B&H.
 
Since many menu options are common across DSLRs, you may find the videos helpful even if you do not own a 7D.

Firmware 5.15 Corrects Data Table Issue in 5.10
 
"We recently released the latest official ControlTL firmware, version 5.10. Based on continued internal testing and feedback from users, it appears that a couple of the exposure and timing data tables became corrupted somewhere in the process. We’ve had reports of improper exposures with several camera models as well as shutter clipping with the 1Ds Mark III and 1D Mark IV. We have corrected the tables and the revised firmware is available as version 5.15 and can be downloaded via the PocketWizard Utility now.
 
We recommend upgrading to 5.15 as soon as you can.
 
The manual addendum for v5.10 is still the same for v5.15."
