As I have never done a firmware upgrade I want to make sure I am understanding the directions. My question is I have 2 cards ,CF and sd. Should I format the SD in camera put into PC ,copy Bin to root. Take Cf out of camera, leave out, put SD card in ( camera will only see one card) Select Firmware Version from the setup menu and follow the instructions displayed ....what will I see at this point ? ( so I know all is going well) Thanks
You don't really have to format anything, it's just at file you put on the card. But your sd card must be set as the primary card, or else I don't think your camera will see the bin file. I think taking out the cf card will make the sd the primary card while it out.

That is what I thought, and I also do not think formatting is necessary but will do, a simple chore I can take out CF and make sure it sees SD as primary, should be good to go Thank you both
I did exactly as you describe and it all worked smoothly. I have CF card set as secondary and SD card as primary. the Bin file was placed on the SD card's root. Removing the CF just helped to ensure no confusion.
After pressing OK to initiate the update a screen pops up with a little horizontal progress bar that gradually lights up as the update progresses. It took about 90 sec on my camera...I'm guessing the time might depend on the speed of the card and a few other factors.
Make sure battery is fully charged before you start.
My next move is to findthe download for the Lens corrections - Mine is still on L 1.004
