    Hello, my apologies if this has already been covered. I haven't been on the forums for a week or two, but searches turned up nothing.

    With the latest update, it seems that the recently added "Sport" acceleration mode in my 85D is no longer there. Has anyone else noticed this? Is it because it is just always in Sports mode now? Or was there something wrong with the Sport mode that they had to take it away?

    Thanks.

    Check your release notes. It's in there. As @guywithkeyboard said, Sport is now always on.

    It's gone. But the good news is that you can purchase this upgrade for $2,499 from your local dealership plus $299 installation fee (think it comes in a DVD). The price goes up after Mother's Day sale so don't wait.

    I never really got the point of those modes anyway. If you don't want to go as fast, push the pedal less. There is an elegance in simplicity.
