It’s indeed very nice to see that Canon is actively fixing all bugs being detected and reported. All customers appreciate a company that makes efforts to fix and improve their current products.
Why? Because they CAN be improved (a lot). Many improvements are even a “kid’s game”, other require more work.
There are LOT of Canon users and customers asking those improvements since long ago (in some cases even since 2 years ago). Do not believe us, just do a research on forums, blogs and websites.
As always we post a reminder link to the List of Fixes & Improvements. Please check it and spread it for the benefit of all Canon users.
Some of those ideas and request listed there (collected from many hundred of professional and serious amateurs around the world) were taken by Canon and implemented on later but MUCH cheaper cameras (Panasonic took many ideas too, more seriously than Canon and did even a better job in their implementation).
If you want to get deeper and know more about the potential of Canon cameras that is not officially exploited by the manufacturer, please check The Hidden Potential of 5D Mark II and Magic Lantern Firmware Wiki. Do an internet research too, you may get surprised.
