I second that thanks to Canon!

I bought the 5D MK2 with my eyes wide open and knowing about its weaknesses. It seems to be a fantastic still camera, and now, with the latest firmware, it's an amazing video one too.

But please, please, make 25 FPS the next firmware update for those users outside North America and Japan.

I'll give thanks as well. The camera simply "feels" better in video mode. And the auto-ISO function is surprisingly well done.

My 5DMKII had a hotpixel seen only at high Iso in movie mode. It's gone now! Great...

A lens that like would only have use for videographers. No way Canon will build a lens like that only for video community.

Bah, you don't need IS. Put that thing on a tripod where it belongs when you're shooting video.

Canon Inc. deserves heaps of praise for following through on this, but in my opinion we should keep the pressure on for the 25p requests.

100% agreement on both points.
Is there a petition floating about, or is this it? (For the 24/25p, that is.)

No need for petitions. Reps of all the camera companies absolutely do read the message boards even thought they don't generally post. They also talk to people at trade shows and take input directly on their company web sites/email. They absolutely DO know what we customers want. Just keep letting 'em know what it will take to keep us wanting to buy their products rather than a competitor's.

Yep, a tripod, dolly, slider, jib, steadycam - take your choice - will deliver much more professional images than IS. Of course, IS is easier to carry...

Absolutely! My prediction stands that they will deliver 25p before the end of the year, and I have a stomach allergy for crow. :)
