Canon Releases Firmware Updates For Many DLSRs Because Of Issues With EF 70-300mm F/4-5.6 IS II And EF-S 18-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lenses

Canon released firmware updates for almost every DSLR released before 2015. It’s because many Canon DSLRs have issues with the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II and EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lenses.

The firmware update…

Corrects a phenomenon in which when using the camera with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM or EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens, even if lens aberration correction is set to “”Enable””, correction will not be applied.
