The R6 would be perfect for me if ...

I know there's no perfect camera, but when considering mirrorless full-frame, the R6 was enough to wean me away from considering the Nikon Z system after shooting with a D750 for a few years.  I was won over mainly by the mind-blowing AF (especially Eye AF).

That said, these are the (very few) things that, if Canon would address on the R6, would make it pretty much the most perfect camera I've ever owned.  (And I'm not trolling here, but it WOULD be great if a Canon rep would come across this ...)

- Give us the ability to save all settings to a card for backup or transfer to another camera (like you can on a Nikon)

- Give us the ability to customize the Q menu

- When I customize another button to “Menu display” (like I've done to the DOF preview button), I wish that pressing the button again would act the same as the dedicated Menu button, i.e. go back a step in the menu instead of returning to shooting mode

- Give us the ability to shoot 4K video indefinitely without overheating (but I'm sure we all wish that)

Anyhow, that's all I've found about the R6 that I would improve if I could.  So far it's been the most amazing camera I've ever owned.

What do you wish Canon would improve/fix on the R6?
