Dear Mr. Maeda,

Since you are currently the head of the entire camera division, covering both DSC and EOS DSLR system, we decided to write this petition to Canon Inc. and also directly to your person.

We are Canon customers and users all over the world (enthusiasts, amateurs and professionals) who would like to place a public petition to Canon regarding the EOS 5D Mark II.

Specifically we want to suggest and request some improvements for this camera, that could be implemented via Firmware Updates.

The EOS 5D Mark II is a Great DSLR, but after testing and using it, even for professional tasks, we found the importance of some missing features and controls that we would like to list and that competitors have in their models.

As you might already know, thousands of people have suggested and requested many of these features by online inquiries, online reviews, lot of community forums and blogs (even at professional's blogs), emails, and also phone calls.

WE SINCERELY HOPE Canon take this list seriously in account, due to the HUGE IMPORTANCE it represents for so many people, and then give us (the community of Canon users) the improvements we have suggested and requested.

That will demonstrate not only that CANON CERTAINLY listen to customers suggestions, but also will achieve more satisfied customers, and a MUCH GREATER camera that will be the interest of more current and future customers.

Below is the List of Features that we suggest and request to be added via Firmware Updates for the EOS 5D Mark II:

- ADD: Selectable a minimum shutter speed in Auto ISO.
- ADD: Selectable lower and upper limit for Auto ISO.

Thank you VERY MUCH in advance for your Comprehension, Time and Help.
