As promised, Canon has made Canon EOS R5 firmware update version 1.1.1 available for
adding improvements for the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM Lens.
Firmware Version 1.1.1 incorporates the following fixes and enhancements:
- When the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is attached, an image stabilization effect of approximately six stops* is achieved through collaborative control with the in-lens image stabilization.
*Focal length 500mm, Based on CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which the IS capabilities may be degraded when performing continuous shooting in cases where the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is attached to the EOS R5 running firmware version 1.1.0.
A friend shared that B&H has notified customers on their R5 waitlist that this camera should ship by the end of October.
If not already on that list, now is a good time to add your name.
