Canon releases firmware updates for the EOS R and 7 RF lenses

Canon has released new firmware updates for its EOS R camera and a handful of its RF-mount lenses. The updates bring support for Canon’s latest lenses to the EOS R and improve compatibility between the in-lens stabilization and in-body stabilization of the EOS R5 and R6 with RF-mount lenses.

Firmware version 1.7.0 for the Canon EOS R adds support for Canon’s RF 600mm F11 STM, 800mm F11 STM, RF 1.4x teleconverter, RF 2x teleconverter and the new LP-E6NH Battery Pack. No further bug fixes were addressed in this firmware update, but Canon does say the using the EOS R’s multifunction bar in playback mode has been improved.

Canon has also released updated firmware for seven of its IS-capable RF-mount lenses so they will better work alongside the sensor-shift image stabilization inside Canon’s new R5 and R6 mirrorless cameras. Below are the lenses getting the new update:

  • RF 15–35mm f/2.8L IS USM
  • RF 24–70mm f/2.8L IS USM
  • RF 24–105mm f/4–7.1 IS STM
  • RF 24–105mm f/4L IS USM
  • RF 24–240mm f/4–6.3 IS USM
  • RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM
  • RF 70–200mm f/2.8L IS USM

You can download firmware version 1.70 for the EOS R and all of the lens firmware updates from Canon Canada’s website, as the Canon USA website is still down due to a recent hack.
