Just wondering what people really want. You may pick just one option you really really need in the 5d mark IV, so we can figure out what 5d mark III really lacks.

Excellent list! Can I say all of the above? :lol:

I really want three upgrades: 1. greater resolution, 2. improved dynamic range (with cleaner shadow detail), 3. improved high iso performance (a full stop improvement would be great).

For me, it's a tie between resolution and DR. The rest barely even register on my list.

Not on the list, but a built in Pez dispenser would be great.

I just need it to come out soon so the 5DIII drops into my price range.

As a wedding photographer I am really disappointed with the lack of spot metering for all AF points.
I find it extremely annoying not to be able to make a quick perfect exposure for the face when my subject is backlit or when light changes.

Even the cheapest Nikons have it.

I've voted for the dynamic range. (and I will add: no anti-moire filter on the sensor... to increase the global sharpness)

To do that, you'll have to greatly increase the megapixel count. 36MP at least, 50MP would be even better.

If you remove the AA filter but leave it at 22MP, you'd get terrible moire on a lot of subjects.

Would it be reasonable/possible to have a very high resolution sensor with two very usable resolution modes - like 40+ MP and 20+ MP? I'm just thinking for a lot of high-output shooters, like those that do weddings, a really high resolution sensor would likely be a detriment for processing workflow.

Having used my a7R, which has no AA filter, and my 5D III which does, I am less concerned about AA filters anymore. Sure, it would be nice not to have AA in an ultra-high resolution camera, but I think Canon sensors do a fine job of capturing sharp details within the limits of their sensor resolution. I would rather have a do-it-all camera (high-res studio and lower-res action), than a niche one-trick-pony camera.

That's what mRAW and sRAW are for. Do it with a Phase One-style pixel binning method and you'd eliminate moire in the smaller files as well as be able to push the ISO 1 or 2 stops higher. And you still have the super-high-resolution mode available for those shots you'd like to print really large.

- Better DR
- Higher resolution
- Better high ISO performance
(in other words, get on Sony/Nikon's image sensor level)
- Spot metering linked to AF point
- Fix the crippling SD card write speed
- In-camera radio trigger for 600EX flashes
- Competitive price point

I would really like a swivel LCD.
