How often do people actually use those features? I played with HDR a couple of times and have made a few 10 second videos just to see what it was like, as for panoramas, I think I have about 5 at most over about 20 years and they're another experiment just to see what they're like. I use the sweep panorama mode on my iPhone goofing around sometimes but all of those scene modes and other stuff on my cameras, no, I never use them, but will admit that sometimes I feel cheated if it doesn't have them like other cameras do. I have used the double exposure mode on the 5Dlll a few times as a novelty too, now that I tried it I realize I never needed that either.  Not saying you don't need or want them, just saying I never use them.
