Anyone else upset the new 5DIII looks like it will not fix the AF point Illumination issue?

Re: this doesn't help track a moving subject

I cant see what wrong with just hitting the top right hand button and illuminating all the AF points, this will show which point is selected. I appreciate it goes off after hitting another button but at least it shows where it is.

This isn't useful when one needs to keep the selected AF point positioned over a moving subject, when both the subject and the background are dark.

Yeah, i can see how its a bit of a pain for some. In that case i would use expanded AF point and AI Servo, but again, not ideal.
