True. I personally don't use spot metering.

can´t choose all shutter speeds in auto iso (max 250)

? You cannot do under Tv and M modes?

shadow noise (as i posted below)

cant use old canon lens

You can thru adapter such as use FD lenses.

no flash ( small, low power...sometimes its necessary and we don´t have any speedlite near)

Get 270EX II that is pretty small and light but much powerful than built-in flash.

in auto iso, aperture mode...sometimes is usefull when i want to control the aperture but need fast shutterspeeds...

I got it - min shutter in Av mode.  Agreed Canon is not the best in auto-ISO implementation.  Technically M-mode suppose should meet all these request.  But with auto-ISO in M-mode you cannot EC (exposure compensation) that is one of my major complaints with all Canon DSLRs (except 1DX now supports this feature a FW update).

spot meter linked to focus point is very usefull

you get all this with 1 series Canon .

the built-in flash is enough (when travel light)...use 800 iso, no noise.
