Is there a reason Canon comes up with new grips & batteries for each camera (or at least every other camera), beside trying to make more profit ?

They don't always come up with new batteries, and sometimes not grips.  The LP-E5 battery fit the XS, XSi, and T1i.  The LP-E6 battery fits the 5DII, 7D, and 60D.  The T2i and T3i both use the same battery (LP-E8) and the same grip (BG-E8). 

If they make a change to the shape of the body, there needs to be a new grip to match.

I would like to see these features:
  • Thunderbolt Integration
  • Switchable between Full Frame and Crop (One of the Nikon cameras have this)
  • High ISO
  • Touch screen in live view to adjust focus and/or exposure (Camera Pro on the iPhone has a good implementation of this)
  • Night Vision (we can dream can't we?)

I would like to add to more features to my order please:
  • GPS for Geo-tagging (I should have the option of turning it off)
  • WiFi for wireless uploading of my images (The Eye-Fi can do this inside an SD card)

One more thing,
  • built in master module so that I can remotely, wirelessly, trigger a flash.

That would seem to require a pop-up flash, something I really don't want on a 5DIII.  Unless Canon goes RF...

Haven't seen much demand for tougher/weather sealed body...

Personal Wishlist...

Bluetooth
WiFi
Internet Enabled
GPS
More FPS
Waterproof to 5m
Dual card slot

My phone can do most of this.  Surely a reasonably spec'd camera can get close?

Yes, canon is about to replace their whole L lens line-up with water proof lenses!  :P

Just to add something about the battery...

There was somekind of new regulation in Japan about battery safety standards, so camera companies have to come up with a new battery for their newer model - ones that'll comply to the new regs. (I remembered reading that from Olympus E-5 battery discussions...)

It'd be nice if it was a flying device, if it had robot legs and took pictures by itself.

Seriously let's stick with realist things to expect: better sensor in every aspect, big af update (something between 7d and 60d IMO), digic V, something surprising in video mode (even if I don't care), built-in flash transmitter, probably two card slots like d700 (or not), a re-designed body (more ergonomic, sorry the bg-e6 won't fit :P), more customizable options in the menus.

PLEASE GOD I DON'T WANT AN ARTICULATING SCREEN (amen).

I don't think there will be much more than that, but "that" already makes it a great upgrade.

Which is great, with the ef800 + 2x teleconverter you don't need to be all that close to them nasty sharkies!

I hope they concentrate on getting the high ISO performance at least up to Nikon standards. I stopped caring about megapixels when they got to 10.

The only other thing I'd like is the 7D's AF.

I doubt the FPS will improve, if only for marketing reasons.

Missed the poll but I would have voted for better ISO and noise handling.  I'm happy with everything else, including even the so-called lousy AF system that everybody seems to complain about.  To me it's simple and just 'works'.

The low-ISO noise and banding issues are annoying.  The non-defeatable low-ISO NR smudging and smearing is also ridiculous.  The high ISO chroma noise that starts to get ugly at around 800 is bad too. Thankfully DPP does a pretty darned good job of handling most of this assuming you shot in RAW, but a camera like this really does deserve better in-camera JPEG processing.  The Nikons have way better in-camera JPEG processing.  I "forgive" Canon for this because of how well DPP works and the fact that it's free.  Nikon's software is awful in comparison and they make you pay for it, so it's a good thing their in-cam JPEG processing is pretty darned good.

As for the AF system, it'd be nice if it kept working in a stop or so dimmer light.  The fact that it seems to quit early in dim light is my only real complaint.  If they're not going to improve that, then at least put an AF assist lamp or something on the camera.

Was wondering if any of the Canon tech or marketing departments check out this website for customer feedback? hope they do! :-\

What not a lot of people requested  in the new 5D mkIII is a focusing light in dark situations

I think the 5DmkII is nice already, but as 'expected' for new features of a mkIII are great if they happen; but I believe (IMO of course) that a focusing light (heck, just like nikon :-) ) would benifit a lot of photographers who do a lot of low/no light photography (ie weddings, receptions, events etc.)

just my 2 cents and cake.
