An overall improvement to the nut which holds the camera.

I only wish that was true. Even a minor improvement would be good.

My vote also goes to "Better dynamic range".
I accidentally clicked on "Other (Specify)" in the poll though.

+ Dynamic range
+ Popup flash
+ Replaceable focus screen
+ Exposure compensation in manual mode

I miss the Eg-s focus screen on the 5D2. I love the dynamic range, popup flash, and exposure compensation in manual mode on my Nikon.

What do you mean by Exposure compensation in manual mode?

28 to 30mp and increase buffer size.


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

They will mean Auto-ISO mode, with the mode dial set to "M" to allow selection of aperture and shutter speed, with the camera choosing ISO. It is an auto mode like Av or Tv, but some refer to it as "manual" because it shares the position on the mode dial with manual mode.

There is, of course, no way you could have EC in manual, but it is logical for "M with auto-ISO" to have it.

Exactly. When you shoot weddings you just cant go full manual for all changing light situations.
So inside I usually go for Manual mode + 1/160 and I also want my aperture to stay at f 1.4. Autoiso is very fine, BUT when I have strong backlights like windows behind my subject I really need to bump the EC for a correct exposure on my subject. (because Canon doesnt meter for the focus point, unless its the center point - which I never use).

You would say "oohh go in AV". In AV the shutter speed can go nuts. Too low or too high. Resulting in camera shake or noisy pictures. So where is my EC in M + Autoiso ? Oh.. Nikon has it :(

Yep, Nikon's is what everyone should be aiming for IMO. A great system.

Let's see... My MOST needed feature would be a highlight-weighted metering mode, like the one Nikon has now. And I'd like it to work seamlessly with ETTL.

A close second would be basic video features, like DPAF & touch screen, zebras & focus peaking.

I like that idea, not as a most needed but certainly as a faeature. You not talking teh same as highight priority I understand.

for me to plumb for teh 5D4 rather than the 5DR it would need around 36MP, and much improved DR and wider exposure compensation- limiting the 5Dr to +/- 3 is bonkers ian a lando's camera - just dont get that at all. Thats about all im interested in -never use iso above 800, never use fast fps
