From the Canon Professional Network:
 
Canon has released a new update to its popular Digital Photo Professional 4 (DPP4) software. Version 4.5.20 adds support for older cameras including EOS-1Ds Mark II, EOS-1D Mark II N, EOS-1D Mark II, EOS 5D, EOS 40D, EOS 30D, EOS 20Da, EOS 20D, EOS 400D DIGITAL (EOS Kiss Digital X / EOS DIGITAL REBEL XTi), EOS 350D DIGITAL (EOS Kiss Digital N / EOS DIGITAL REBEL XT), PowerShot G15, PowerShot S110, PowerShot S100, and PowerShot S100V along with support for the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens
 
Since its launch in 2014, Digital Photo Professional 4 has grown to support over 50 DSLR and PowerShot cameras. As well as supporting all the current professional full-frame DSLRs in the Canon range, this latest update now supports a wider range of older models and addresses a few other issues such as:
 
  • Improved accuracy of the lens data of Digital Lens Optimizer for EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro, EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM lenses.
  • Fixed the problem where it takes time to display a preview image on the high resolution display.
  • Fixed the phenomenon on the Mac OS in which RAW images imported via remote shooting are not displayed for preview in some cases.
Commenting on this latest DPP4 update, Mike Burnhill, Canon Europe’s Professional Imaging Technical Support Programme manager, told CPN: “DPP continues to prove itself as a popular workflow tool for those photographers dedicated to maintaining an all-Canon workflow from capture to print. Canon developed DPP to work seamlessly with Canon cameras and we are delighted more and more users are discovering its workflow benefits. We have been listening to customers and expanding support for new and existing models within DPP.”

ISO noise test results have been added to the Canon EOS M5 Review.
 
The word was that the M5 would have identical image quality to the Canon EOS 80D. Looking at the EOS M5 vs. 80D comparison, I see some slight differences. When I first loaded and compared the M5 results, I thought that I miss-focused the lens. Five tests later, I concluded that the M5 was turning in very slightly softer results than the 80D. However, it is likely the RAW processing is what is different. In DPP's Quick Check window, the M5 results are slightly sharper than the 80D results. In DPP's Edit window and in the processed TIFF files, it is the 80D that appears sharper.
 
What I think I like better is the EOS M5's reduced high ISO noise grain.
 
B&H has the Canon EOS M5 in stock.

Just letting you know that the Determining the Age of a Canon Lens Using Serial Numbers and Date Codes page has been updated with serial numbers and date codes for 2017.
 
The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM Lens was the latest Canon lens I've checked. It bears a serial number starting with "47", indicating that this lens was likely manufactured in the November 2016 timeframe, which is very likely the case. Note: The image above does not show the serial number for the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens.
 
Also note that I continue to get the occassional report of a recently-produced lens having the older-style date code. This table remains available with the new year included in it.
