Default Mk.III firmware update? (UPDATED It's here!)

Read about it here: SportsShooter.com - Mark III - Firmware 1.0.9?

Seems like a fix may be coming...

UPDATE: Here it is: Canon EOS-1D Mark III firmware 1.1.0 now available: Digital Photography Review

...great news for Canon, bad news for some of our member's bankaccounts... they will feel 'dismembered' LOL

...but let's not chear too early, as JD mentionned: why the 1D Mk II N if firmware alone could have pulled the trick?... but I am regaining a little confidence, they now at least acknowledge that there *is* *a* problem... and that they *are* addressing it...

...0.02...

Probably because of this: SportsShooter.com - Canon discovers AF glitch
