I hope they fix the espresso maker.  Having a reliable source of caffeen in the morning is essential for us professional photographers.  My 5DIII is not very good at making espresso with the current firmware.  Hope they fix it!!

I would like to see the Auto iso feature repaired when the flash is on. It works great until you turn on the flash, then it defaults to 400 or 1600, even if this will results in a long exposure (it can be several seconds long). I like just a hit of bounced in flash at times.

I would like to see options for programming other features into the buttons on the left side of the body. I have no need for any of the buttons on the left now that I have view and zoom in the center of the control wheel.

:-) did you know you can write custom lua scripts with the latest magic lantern firmware addon (atm only for up to 60d/7d2)? You could at least write a timer script that reminds you of drinking coffee every now and then, or draw a little coffee machine on your display.

 Has anyone contacted Canon, i did and it was a pretty basic response but theres a bunch of photographers on another forum who were very pro-active about contacting Canon. The word is getting out they just need to hear us.  :)

Have you even put coffee in it? I thought the manual made it quite clear, but just for your benefit:

1) Make sure the lens is not mounted
2) Pour ground coffee into mirror assembly
3) Mount most expensive lens
4) Add water to battery compartment
5) Press 'SET'

Voila. This is not a firmware issue, please read more carefully in future.

Is there any way to set the default zoom when reviewing images and zooming in? I'd like for it to start so that the whole image is displayed, then I have to force it to zoom in. Currently it starts at a zoom level that only displays about 60% of the image.

Push the play button instead of the zoom button?

Yes, it's in the menu.  I have mine set at 4x (default is 2x).  I don't have my camera with me atm, but it know you can set it in the menu.

Go to page 252 of the manual, or, under the playback 3 menu you can set the starting magnification and initial position for the magnified view.

add a 2x2 block sampled 1.6x crop mode to video, true 1920x1080 and better reach than the FF mode

lessen in-cam NR, off is off, 100%, at all ISOs, low is 100% luma NR off and only chroma NR, standard is full chroma NR but light luma that preserves details without blotching, High is like the current standard. Make sure video supports detail over NR.

Total control over button assignments. Require one button be set to menu so you can't lock yourself out of changes, and make the joystick work the same as now when the menu is selected.   When menu isn't selected, allow joystick to act as additional buttons or changes (ISO up/down). Same with touch dial, which you should be allowed to use even out of video mode if desired.

i'd really like to have the ability to assign any other function to the rate button such as enable / disable bracketing ie hold the rate button down and scroll the wheel and it automatically dials in the brackets as the 1D have done since the dawn of digital
