The Canon EOS 30D also got a firmware update this week. EOS 30D users can download firmware v1.0.6 from here since a number of fixes and improvements have been incorporated.
The lens IDs of lenses released after the EOS30D are not in the camera; so these lens names could not be recorded in the Exif information of images. The Lens IDs for the following new lenses are now included, so that the correct lens names will be recorded in the Exif information of images.
EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM *1)
EF 50mm f/1.2L USM *2)
EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM *2)
EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM *1)

The correct lens names for the lenses marked **1) above will be recorded in the Exif information of images. Lenses marked **2) are added if the firmware is version 1.0.5 or later.
