Canon 5D Mark-II firmware updates

I hadn't realised that there have been a couple of updates since I've had my camera. It was on the latest at the time of purchase - v2.0.8.

Since then, two updates have been issued:


1) v2.0.9 - Changes in this version:

Firmware Version 2.0.9 incorporates the following improvements and fixes:
1. Improves writing/reading speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards.
2. Fixes a phenomenon where the IS function will not work when custom function C.Fn III-2 is set to [5: IS start] and the lens attached does not have an AF stop button. This is because custom function C.Fn III-2 allows users to assign IS start to the AF stop button on the lens
3. Corrects misspellings in the menu screens displayed in Arabic, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai languages.
Firmware Version 2.0.9 is for cameras with Firmware up to Version 2.0.8. If the camera's firmware is already Version 2.0.9, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

2) v2.1.1 - Changes in this version:

This firmware update (Version 2.1.1) incorporates the following improvements and fixes:
Fixes a phenomenon where shooting stops after capturing one image when in continuous shooting or the Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB) continuous shooting setting.
Corrects wording in the Dutch language menu screen.
The Version 2.1.1 firmware being released is for cameras with firmware up to Version 2.0.9. If the camera's firmware is already Version 2.1.1, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
If you speak Dutch it seems to be a worthwhile update.

I'll update just to be at the latest level regardless.

I'm still on 1.0.9.

I thought I may have posted one of these on here? Forget.
