Just finished updating but had to do it direct to the camera, it would'nt work with my card reader. New menus look awesome.

I've thought about this some, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't fix anything I feel is broken or offer anything new I've been wanting. It will change the way the camera works with new menus. I don't feel it is worth learning the new menus for the grins. Or resetting all the preferences I've finally got "just the way I want 'em."

So I've decided not to upgrade for now.

Some other things I noticed after upgrading that are NOT mentioned anywhere:

- new softer, more "precise" sounding focus beep
- ability to choose closest-subject focus mode in non-auto modes! see custom settings menu

I don't think that is part of the upgrade. I'm able to select that in non-auto modes and haven't (probably won't) updated my firmware.

All my settings stayed exactly where I left them. The menus are the same just look different (different font I think (clearer to read), and I have noticed that my lcd is a lot easier to see, for some reason.
the focus system does work a tad better and I did notice the beep is a bit softer.

The menus are much easier to read. There is nothing new to learn on the menus, and I didn't notice it changing anything. This is one upgrade that I think is definately worth doing.
