I hope the 5D MkIII does not have:
7D's initial auto focus issues
Swing out screen
More megapixels
Higher price (kidding). It'll likely be $3000 plus street initially.
SD card

I hope it has:
Better autofocus without issues
5fps
Better ISO performance
Onboard flash like D700

I hope it does have the articulating screen

you people are so strange

i would love that thing. and i dont see how it's any more of a detriment to weather sealing than a pop up flash.

With all the talk of 50MP at the Canon Expo I don't think you get your wish. Just improved sensors to deal with the high MP count. ;)

Make it a smaller form 1DsIV rather than a full frame xxD. Maybe dual cards. Improved ISO performance would always be nice.

Mp is fine, screw the pop-up flash and articulated screen.

the 7d does, and has comparable weather sealing to the 5d

Canon Rumors is leaning towards 28 MP's in the 5DmkIII. This puts it close to the FF version of the 40D sensor IIRC. IMO this looks to be the sweet spot for now.

I do not think Canon will want to offer worse IQ or noise or banding then the current 5DmkII.

Canon seems to put newer ideas in lower priced units to beta test these features and work the bugs out. Then they put them in the top of the line bodies where there is far less drama and at those price points rightly so.

Here is my wish list.

100% VF
7D AF and AF points.
5 FPS and 5 exposure bracketing for -2,-1,0 and +1,+2 shots for HDR LANDSCAPES. I see this body as a portrait and landscape body and the 7D as an action body.

7D weather sealing but PLEASE give us a weather sealed shutter button and wheels. Remember it is a LANDSCAPE body?

Dedicated movie button like the 7D and more FULLY programmable buttons.

4,2,2 video would be lovely and eliminate the banding issues is a must.

Tie the histogram to the RAW file.

I wish Canon would give us the absolute best chimping feature. Take the pic and the rear screen shows the pic zoomed to 5x or 10x (your choice)on your AF point so you know in a instant how your focus was. No need to press a mess of buttons and stopping your work flow.

Am I the only one who gets this last feature?

Forget fixed bracketing, give us 3,5,7,9 options.. at whatever intervals we want to define.

and while I don't check my focus all the time, I get ya on pre-zoomed on AF point. The problem is... when multiple AF points are activated. I personally use center point most of the time, but not everyone does

Currently we only get 3 exposures in bracketing so 5 would be better and I was using an example not to limit it to my example. I doubt we will be given more than 5 exposures but more would be nice but 5 is a move in the right direction IMO.

Even when more than one AF point is used there seems to be one that is at the center of the AF activity at least it is on the 7D. Right now on the 5DmkII it is only one AF point that is the primary one used . So multiples are not an issue.

Perhaps you are not checking your focus because it is such a slow and awkward affair. I bet more would check if it popped up as I described above. It would flow so much faster and would allow us to chimp after the fact on a burst as well. Instead of looking at the image and then zooming in with many presses and then toggling over to the AF point. What a painful process. For now it is not worth it. Add in the battery drain to do this every time and it is lame.

The new thing is the swing out LCD.

I really hope the future of SLRs does not have this.

I would like to see some better ISO capabilities rather than the high MP's.

And better AF would be nice too!

Maybe 2K video RAW shooting?
