Imagine everyone else who's encountered this is thinking the same, and also wondering if they'll ever do something about it? After all, they're touting it as a selling feature to new buyers when not even usable thanks all the dead noise(i'd think this borders on illegal). Or maybe they only feel obligated if the issue renders the camera DOA as V2 was doing? Pre-V2 at least you could USE an external mike at all, provided with Auto Gain.

The exact external mike/manual audio level feature is also found on the 60D, 5DMkIII, 6D, and 1Dx, yet not aware of any issues using it w/those cameras?

Anyone heard anything - Canon are you listening???

Have you registered this fault with Canon? They don't have any kind of professional presence on this forum...
