Firmware Updates for the Konica Minolta 5D

If I was able to catch your attention with this article's title, great! However, it's just a bit of a trick.

No firmware update has ever been released for the 5D. I am aware of only two official firmware versions: 1.00e and 1.00u. Apparently the 'e' version is found in cameras sold in Europe, and the 'u' version in cameras sold in the USA. Regarding other regions, I don't know - and am not sure that it matters, except perhaps for language support. As far as I know, both versions offer the same functionality.

Anyway, searching for 5D firmware updates is not likely to produce any useful results. I prefer to think that the firmware was properly designed the first time out, so no updates are necessary.
