New Canon 5DMrkII firmware: nothing new

Canon Asia just released a new firmware update for the 5DMrkII. According to the documentation it does not do much:

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.

Thanks to Canon Rumors for pointing this out, almost missed it!

    This is really disappointing. What about the things we actually need…?

    I dont think we should expect anything new feature wise for the 5DMRkII from Canon now. It is almost 3 years old and will probably be replaced by the end of the year so they will be keeping all the new features for the new camera to make it look more attractive.
