Would have been nice if they added some of those functions on the way more expensive Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

True, but that's why everybody recons that the 7d2 is not around the corner: Canon does not seem to be in the habit of adding features to cameras that already or nearly have a successor. So the firmware upgrade for the 5d2 is the 5d3.

I know that's the hint of no 7D Mark II around but I hate this kind of Canon marketing: never seen such an expensive firmware upgrade!

Good marketing is not when you love it, but when you buy it (or at least don't buy something else) :-o ... just like the most annoying tv advertisement or the radio jingle you can't get out of your head. But of course you know that, I just couldn't resist writing it again.

will the firmware update give us audio controls while recording like the 5dm3 and let you see your audio levels live? or will it be more like the audio controls on the 5dm2/60d where you have to preset your settings?

i cant really tell by the descriptions
