Updated: List of Canon lenses that Have Limited Compatibility with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF System

Canon has published a list of lenses that have limited compatibility with the 70D's new Dual Pixel CMOS AF system. Here is that list:

EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 II USMEF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II
EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 III USMEF 90-300mm f/4.5-5.6
EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 IV USMEF 90-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM
EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 V USMEF 100-200mm f/4.5A
EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USMEF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM
EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USMEF 100-300mm f/5.6
EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6EF 100-300mm f/5.6L
EF 28-105mm f/4-5.6 USM 

My understanding is that the "limited compatibility" lenses will be able to autofocus in Live View using the more-conventional contrast detection method, but they will not support the new Dual Pixel AF. The reason is likely due to a lack of capability in the lens' CPU.
