That was fast. Here is the apology from Canon for the bunk 2.0.3 firmware upgrade.
“We apologize sincerely for the inconvenience caused to our customers by suspending the availability of the Version 2.0.3 firmware.
We are now introducing the Version 2.0.4 firmware. This firmware corrects the malfunction that occurred in the previous Version 2.0.3 firmware, in which the manual recording level changed and made recording impossible.
Customers who have the Version 2.0.3 firmware on their cameras should update the firmware to Version 2.0.4.”

I shot the break at 30fps. The rest was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II 24P Native with a Canon 24-105mm Zoom Lens T4 at 1250 ISO. My AC Chris Collins saved the day and nabbed a 5D to update right after the release. Monday night is pretty lame in Hollywood so we opted for the pool hall. The 24P is silky smooth.
***Update*** Ned over at Hollywood DI hooked up this comparison test with the frame rates burned in. I upgraded the firmware at the pool hall while shooting this.
