For those that care (like me :D), Canon has released a new firmware patch for the 50D.

Can be found here

Guess what I'm going to be doing tonight?

From their web-site, addresses the following:

This firmware update (Version 1.0.6) incorporates the following fixes.

1. Supports the AF assist beam feature of the new flash, Speedlite 270EX, which is scheduled to be released in April 2009.
2. Changes the error indications that are displayed on the camera.
3. Addresses the vertical banding noise phenomenon.

Firmware Version 1.0.6 is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.0.5. If the camera's firmware is already version 1.0.6, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

In addition, Firmware Version 1.0.5 has already been incorporated with improvements to support the AF assist beam feature of Speedlite 270EX and change the error indications that are displayed on the camera.

When updating to Firmware Version 1.0.6, please also update the Digital Photo Professional, Picture Style Editor, ZoomBrowser EX, and ImageBrowser software to the following versions or later.
*Digital Photo Professional: Version 3.5.2 (Windows/Macintosh)
*Picture Style Editor: Version 1.4.2 (Windows/Macintosh)
*ZoomBrowser EX: Version 6.2.1c (Windows)
*ImageBrowser: Version 6.2.1c (Macintosh)

For those that may be wondering what happened to 1.0.4 and 1.0.5 - it appears that 1.0.5 was included in more recently new 50D cameras but Canon chose not to post it on their site for download. Don't know about 50D 1.0.4 yet.
