The focus being remapped to another button like the set button to me isn't terribly huge but i will say when using my other two cameras with my 5dm3 sometimes there is a pause in my thought process to remember the set button function and zoom functions operate differently. I think offering the option to have it programmed to be in the same spot as its always been would just a a nice courtesy to professionals that work with multiple cameras.

Yeah the remap it to set works awfully well.

I don't believe that there is any particular reason for such HUGE firmware upgrade.
After all, firmware upgrades are supposed to address some bugs or any particular issues with the device and I haven't heard about any of such bugs or issues with the camera.

They sure could fix up video features they left out, although now with ML I guess we have some of them already and will soon have more. I don't think ML will be able to deliver crop mode video though and we will have to see whether it can fix AutoISO for stills or not.
