Canon 5D Mark II ships with new firmware? reports on a Canon 5D Mark II spotted in the wild with the new firmware update.

Funnily enough, the update was originally rumored to be out in February; certainly they were talking about it coming, though not confirming all the details. I can't help wondering if the delay was so stores would have a chance to move through existing inventory, and they could get production models out to dealers with the new firmware.

It probably turns off a few sales - or at least causes awkward moments - when new customers ask about the new features and the store has to tell the person that the camera doesn't have it; they'll have to install it themselves.
