Major Canon EOS 1D X Firmware Update Version 1.1.1 Now Available

The new Canon EOS 1D X firmware update version 1.1.1 (leaked earlier today), is now available for download.
 
Firmware Version 1.1.1 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

  1. Enables the center AF point to autofocus when the camera is used with lens/extender combinations whose combined maximum aperture is f/8 (f/5.6 without the firmware update).
     
    * Please see the "Lenses and Usable AF points" section of the revised instruction manual for more details on the lens & camera combinations.
  2. Displays the viewfinder information (such as the AF frames, grid, etc.) in red during autofocusing in AI Servo AF.
     
    * When shooting in dark environments during AI Servo AF, the AF points can be easily confirmed.
     
    * During AI Servo AF, the viewfinder will be lit intermittently, not continuously.
  3. Corrects a phenomenon in which the metering value of the AE sensor becomes incorrect and the captured images become pitch-black depending on the timing of lens attachment and/or detachment.
  4. Fixes a phenomenon in which Err 70 may occur during AEB shooting.
  5. Corrects errors in the Arabic menu.
  6. Fixes a phenomenon in which the firmware of the lenses cannot be updated normally.

Wisely being asked over on the Facebook page is: Will the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, with essentially the same AF system, also get these features in a firmware update?
 
Again, B&H, Adorama and Amazon have the EOS 1D X in stock.
