7D Mk II --> R5

Electronic Full-time Manual Focus - so worth the wait... the ability to quickly get the lens back on the correct focal plane with the manual focus ring when in Servo AF, when the autofocus has once again gone insane (in any mode) and jumped past the target to the background. No more need to switch to One-Shot AF, manually recover your focal point, then switch back to Servo AF - a technique that might work well if your subject is a tree sloth, but it seldom if ever works on a bird. Hopefully Canon will get out equivalent firmware updates out for the 800/f11 (and 600/f11); I use the 800 fairly regularly for water birds at a distance.
