I have a very silly question. I am a still photographer, I don't do video, how do all these great features benefit still shots?

Magic Lantern has more killer features for video, but is immensely helpful for stills and pure usability, too. It's really too much to list, just try it if your body is compatible or see the presentation on the new website. Fyi: The still features I use often are unlimited automatic bracketing and focus stacking

Live view configuration options (focus peaking, zoom options, shortcuts for ISO/WB, crop marks, extra sharpness), UI customizing, histograms on quick review, shutter count, quick zoom, intelligent intervalometer, etc. There's probably something you'd find useful

I did all the initial testing with Alex since March when 5D3 was released and took that "Hello World" photo, I bricked my 5D3 numerous times and all successfully unbricked. The latest build I tested works really well considering it's done in just a few months, I believe it definately won't take a year from now for a stable 5D3 release.

For everybody's sake I just asked about the 5d3 schedule in the forum, and really there's no saying when it'll be ready i.e. if you want ml on ff now or in the near future get a 5d2: http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=1006.0

They have focus stacking, but not bracketing. Stacking is when you choose a start and end point. Bracketing is when you autofocus and take additional pictures ad +-1, 2, 3 focus steps from that point on. As far as i know they don't have this feature.

"Good news, everyone" - I remembered my C knowledge and added focus bracketing myself :-) to ml, it's merged into the latest dev version and will thus appear in the next release for people who don't want to compile ml themselves.
