1. AF (one shot as well as AI servo)
2. higher ISO
3. Lower ISO (wish we had native ISO 25)

and I would love max sync speed of much higher than 1/200 for FF camera. Come on please some make an electronic shutter for CMOS sensors.

I guess something that shoots pictures is nice. And a delete button, gotta have that.

For me it's mostly about fast, accurate auto-focus in continuous mode.

Next is fast frame rate and a large raw buffer.

Everything else is a distant runner-up...

^ This.

Charlie, sounds like you are currently an all manual guy (ISO, shutter speed and F-stop), am I correct? I am not sure I understand the desire for auto ISO then; would you be allowing the camera to determine the final exposure if that is the case?

I am all manual as well...even using kelvin for white balance. I sure don't want the camera determining my final result....enless I am missing something.

I am a AV/TV guy mostly. I only use manual indoors with predictable lighting.

with my zooms outdoors, I just use TV mode since I usually dont care if I'm wide open or stopped down for my snaps (workarounds to get the aperture I want is fairly easy too).

with my faster primes, I shoot AV for DOF control. I dont want to chase the needle, so I'll usually expose for the darkest scene, get the shutter I want and just fiddle with the ISO settings in AV mode. I let the camera figure out shutter, but realistically, I already know that it will be in a certain range.

it takes a bit of guesswork and experience, but I can make due without good auto iso. I just find it super annoying to fiddle with settings, instead of shooting away. My family shots have very little patience for me setting up my camera (even worse when they see me pull out the tripod). I would like to fiddle less and shoot more.

Amen to that.
