I hope they found the bug where the camera frekin wont turn back on and needs the battery removed and inserted again to kick back into action.
Easy fix right....

I am getting over 1,200 shots per battery (wedding photography). I am very happy with the battery performance. I put one fresh battery in each body and I can shoot the whole day. I keep a spare in the car but have not needed it.
I would like to see some optimizations that would extend battey life. BG-E11 will help. But the battery life could use some improvement. There are a lot of bells and whistles to power on this model...and the addition of lighted focus points in servo mode wont help. Hope that is configurable when it's fixed.
Id also like to see the annoying problem of having the camera switch the default card when a card is removed (EVEN WHEN THE POWER IS OFF!). Very annoying to have to reset that. The default card should remain the default card unless it's powered on with one of the cards missing.
Makes me think maybe we have a battery drain issue when powered off if the camera can detect that cards have been removed and re-inserted.
Man, all these great ideas everyone is sharing here, but is anyone submitting their gripes/suggestions to Canon?
I hope they unlock new video features. I'm sticking with my 5Dii for video right now, but if they added clean HDMI 8-bit 4:2:2 out, zebras, and focus peaking, I'd upgrade for that.
I'd upgrade ESPECIALLY if they unlock more video resolution from the sensor and processor.
1. improved Auto-ISO function! Primarily adding exposure correction for "M" mode on Auto-ISO. That would be really easy to fix in firmware and make Auto-ISO a lot more useful.+1
2. red illuminated AF-point/s also in AI-Servo mode. I guess that one will definitely be on the list.
3. I don't ever use video at all. I would therefore like to get a 5D III with all video + related features completely disabled in firmware, with the sole exception of LiveView. Sold at a substantially discounted price - less than a Nikon D800. Lets say € 2.500 ... and I'll immediately buy one! :-)
