From Canon USA:
 
Firmware Version 1.0.3 incorporates the following fixes and improvements:
 
  • Corrects a phenomenon in which the color of images varies depending on the metering mode selected during flash shooting.
  • Improves the reliability of communication when using the EF1.4X III or EF2X III extender.
  • Corrects the level display when the camera is held in the vertical orientation with the hand grip pointing downward.
  • Improves the reliability of communication via USB cable when using the Lens Data Registration function with EOS Utility 3.
Firmware Version 1.0.3 is for cameras with firmware Version 1.0.2 or earlier. If your camera's firmware is already Version 1.0.3, it is not necessary to update the firmware. When updating the firmware of your camera, please review the instructions thoroughly before you update the firmware. The firmware update takes approximately 4 minutes.

From Kickstarter:
 
GearEye is a smart gear management system for on-the-go professionals. It enables you to manage your equipment through thick and thin: organization, tracking, and making sure you always have everything you need whether at home or on the job. GearEye is a game-changer for anything from the smallest messenger bag to the largest camera suitcase.
 
The bond between professionals and their work equipment is special: anyone who’s experienced this can tell you that there are few things worse than losing your essential gear. We’ve been there too, and that’s why we created a system to put an end to this problem. Simply place the RFID GearTag on your gear, and voilá! Everything in your bag can now be easily accounted for, with a simple tap on your smartphone.
 
GearEye is more than just a safety net: it enables you to organize your most important equipment into gig specific groups - so that you always have exactly what you need when you need it. This way, you can quickly and easily make sure you have what you need for today’s studio session (not last week’s beach shoot).

Image quality results have been added to the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art Lens Review.
 
We'll be loading 1Ds III results for this lens soon, but here is the comparison to the Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 DG II HSM Lens, the 12-24 Art's predecessor, using the 5Ds R.
 
The Sigma 12-24 f/4 Art Lens vs. the Canon 11-24mm f/4L Lens was the first comparison on my list. All of the facts you need to know are not in yet, but ... would you pay $1,200.00 USD more for the Canon than the Sigma based on this comparison? Let us know what you think in the comments.
 
B&H has the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art Lens in stock.
