I love my Mark III. But, I would love it even more if it would ALWAYS METER FROM THE SELECTED FOCUS POINT.
Man, I hear you on that. It's a bummer when a third of my frames from a burst in Av mode on my 1DIV are blown out or under exposed when I'm set to spot metering. The 1DX links exposure metering to active AF point and there is no reason that needs to be an exclusively "pro" feature. Hopefully its included in the 7DII and then every not-rebel from here on in.
Is it included in the D800/E/D810?
If not, sadly enough there is no incentive for Canon to put it in the non 1D bodies.
Think viewfinder shutter, for example, or face detection AF. At least these are present in the less expensive Nikon cameras.
