    Have you seen any obvious difference in overall performance? IIRC, it's
    just supposed to fix the banding issue, which isn't an issue for me, and add
    a couple of languages to the mix. I didn't do the upgrade, since, by the
    description, it doesn't add anything to what I do. Should I have?

    The day I got my 20D (Dec 9) I downloaded and installed updates to everything
    that came with the camera - including the camera - so I can't comment on any
    performance improvement.
     

    That's hard to say - until the NEXT firmware update (if any) is released. If
    Canon is true to form, you SHOULD be able to SKIP an interim update. If not,
    well...

    I ran 1.0.5 version for about 6 weeks before upgrading to 1.1 and quite

    with the banding issue either). At the same time I have not noticed any
    negatives to the 1.1 version. Last week, while running v. 1.1, my 20D got
    quite a workout doing indoor flash and available light plus a lot of outdoor
    work with no troubles what so ever.

    I may give this upgrade a try......only banding I get is LONG IR exposures
    at high ISO (45 plus seconds at 800-3200)

    Did it. Worked like a charm. Just make sure to have the lens removed for
    this one.

    Just wondering, because at the last wedding we shot, my wife's 20D had about
    6 lockups of the full-on-take-the-battery-out-and-reboot type, not just your
    garden variety off-and-on or Err99 type. We're running the 1.0.5 firmware.

    Providing you follow the instructions with the update there should be no
    problems, I've updated mine and had no issues with it.

    I have had no issues with that problem with either 1.0.5 or 1.1.0. I thought
    1.0.5 was supposed to fix that one? I always try to remember to turn my
    camera off when changing lenses - don't know if that would have anything to
    do with your wife's problem or not.

    Mine came with 1.0.5 and I upgraded to 1.1.0. with no issues. I try to
    prepare for it though: Print out the instructions and followed them closely.
    A little soft music in the background doesn't hurt a thing either ;-). Been
    running with 1.1. for about 4 weeks and haven't had any lockups or err codes
    either. I love this camera!!

    I thought it was supposed to fix it, too. And she wasn't changing lenses at
    all, kept the same lens on all day. Although I can't imagine why not
    turning it off when changing lenses would affect it, it's never affected any
    other camera I've ever used.

    Without. Mine has the grip, I was changing lenses without turning the
    camera off, using Sigma, Tokina and Canon lenses, big Quantum flash on a
    bracket, in other words, doing all the things that are supposed to generate
    lockups, and avoiding them. She shoots all day with the same Canon 28-135
    IS lens, no grip, fresh battery, had 6 lockups in the first 45 minutes of a
    1 1/2 hour wedding mass.
