This firmware update (Version 2.0.0) supports the EOS 50D Digital SLR Camera. If you are using the EOS 40D, you do not need to update the firmware.
If the firmware of the WFT-E3/E3A is Version 1.0.0, the WFT-E3/E3A will not operate in conjunction with the EOS 50D (a firmware update message will appear).
In addition, if the WFT-E3 has the new Version 2.0.0 firmware, it can be used with the EOS 40D as well as the EOS 50D ; however, the three new functions of the Version 2.0.0 firmware below only apply to the EOS 50D ; they do not function on the EOS 40D.
New functions of the new Version 2.0.0 firmware
