No, the exact quote is "first half of 2010" not beginning of 2010. Cultural differences aside, that could mean June 29th... or whenever Canon feel like it has sold enough 7Ds and other back stock. <_<

I seriously doubt there is a lot of work involved in developing this software/ firmware upgrade. A few lines of code somewhere need to be re-written. It would be nice if they were to fix the color space issues as well so that it worked right with Final Cut Pro.

Still, it is better late than never. But it merely proves it was never a hardware issue, and that they could have delivered it over a year ago had they developed the camera with digital cinematographers and indie film makers in mind from the start.

The 5d mk2 was developed by the still camera division, without a lot of consulting from the video engineers and developers. A fascinating combination of accidental brilliance and insanely bad oversight.
