Canon 5D Mark II -->Auto Iso like Nikon/Pentax with limits...

Hi Guys.
Well this is driving me crazy for a long time.
But not only me, its in all forums worldwide.

The Auto Iso function ist so bad and not usable.
f.e.: Auto Iso in M  -> Iso400 is fixed  !--> better like Nikon incl all Iso!!!
or you set to AV, put a 24II on top and shutter time is fixed at 1/20 or 1/30?!? (like focal length...)
This is not enought, because there is a need for a Limit (1/100 etc..)

Why this is not possible??
Its a simple programming, done in a few minutes.
We need a changement by fimware for this!!! (plus many more things)
when you take a look at 1D/7D/550D/60D, all those Cams do it a better way.
So its not possible for the 5DII????????

(Or like the Nikon D700 (well D90 did it also...)) :P

Please Canon make this feature usable for us!
Incl. exposure compensation!!!
This is right now not working for us, who needs this.
M is simply not workable and enough for a fast workaround.

Cheers from Berlin.
D.

The 5DmkII is great, but its also on the last leg of its race.  More options would be great (as always), but as someone who is waiting for the 5DmkIII to release, I'd rather them spend more time on making that one better.

The expectations for the 5D line has changed completely from the original 5D.

Different users like different features, so a product will not have every possible feature that people will want, but we can wish.

Canon tends to use the rule of shutter speed = 1/X(lens focal length) and then increases or lowers ISO to the lowest value needed to meet that rule. So, my 5D MK II with 50mm lens sets about a 1/50 shutter speed at whatever aperture I set and adjusts ISO accordingly.

 What I'd like to see is the ability to change that rule to 1/2X, 1/5X, etc.  This probably also accomplishes what people want when they want to set limits on ISO, since by using 1/5X, the ISO would increase to meet a fast shutter soeed, or by using 1/0.5X, ISO would stay low and shutter speed would be reduced while aperture stayed the same.

It would be nice to do it on a lens by lens basis as well.
