Well after the 3rd attempt I finally managed to get it done. Disclaimer: It's late... I've been up since 4am so I'm tired so excuse any slurring or just any speech errors on my part.... BUT.. good info in there. I particularly like the part at 14:25... REALLY good stuff there. Hope this helps anyone that does not have the camera and wants to know.

Thanks man. I wish real websites would do this. Not even DPReview does this. I always have to wait to get the camera to really know whats in the menus. I'm boring... tried to get it shorter but 3 attempts and each 21-23 minutes. you SHOULD have a really good working of the menu after this though. I did not touch on every item just the major changes from the 5d3.

If I managed to of missed anything please post them here so we can discuss :)

Yup.

Right now I have the AF-on set to case 1 and large zone in servo and the ae lock button set to all 61 point auto in servo and case 4. Going to see how that works out

The other crazy thing is the dof button can be set to another custom function so the really is you have 4 possible shooting modes all by a button... Crazy.

The biggest thing to me is the fact you can set the two back buttons to DIFFERENT focusing setups per YOUR desire AND you can set the DOF to AF function = 4 different focusing setups without ever pulling your eye from the viewfinder.

Where is this useful?... oh bird shooters who can use the normal shutter to snap a stationary bird and if that bird flys away just press the back button and you can have it in servo with all points activated.... never leaving your eye from the subject. Sports guys... well I know for me and baseball this works out great because now I can one shot the hitter... then when he starts running just press the back button and boom.... servo and zone on case 4 or whatever.

This is very very powerful and I plan on taking full advantage of it.

sounds overcomplicated  :p

why not just leave it on whatever case, BBAF on the batter? isnt that the whole purpose of BBAF?
