    As mentioned before I did change my 40D screen but I've never been tempted with my 6D.
    Something to be said for only having 11 focusing points - at least I know where I'm looking

    I may be expecting too much from manual with such narrow dof anyway.....but it would be good to not have to move focus points around or use the centre point and then recompose....a simple twist of the lens ring might be more intuitive.

    Maybe EVF is the answer...…………….
    Don't you have touch focus with the screen, so that you can touch the part of the image on the screen you want to focus on?

    Yes if using live view....but that’s no use for using the viewfinder.....I never use the 5D4 with live view unless on a tripod.
