Canon’s venerable EOS 7D has another firmware update free for customers to download. Firmware 2.0.5 addresses a specific issue relating to the combination of the EOS 7D camera and the WFT-E5 Wireless File Transmitter. Like most firmware updates it is a good idea to keep your cameras up to date.
Canon’s website says:

Firmware Version 2.0.5 is for cameras with firmware version 2.0.3. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 2.0.5, it is not necessary to update the firmware. Once the camera is updated to version 2.0.5, it cannot be restored to a previous firmware version.
