    Oh God, you're going to get your hide tanned mentioning that eye tracking focus is absurd. A few weeks back a thread went off like firecrackers with that single most irritating subject. But, ah, I too, as an ex-user of all of those ECF cameras (EOS 5, 50E), thoroughly agree — now let's go run and hide!! .

    Continuous auto focus, multi-point focus, and matrix metering.

    Over-rated features:
    -program exposure
    -auto focus
    -motor drives
    -double-exposure levers
    -built-in flashes

    also, definitely not over-rated but quite useless none-the-less is:
    -flash bulb sync

    I am a little dismayed on the number of people who find Auto Focus as a useless option. OK, maybe its because I do a bit of sports shooting (even on film), but I find Auto Focus to be one of the best functions of my camera. The only time I don't use it is in bad light OR macro. Yes, AF on older models can be a bit hit and miss, but on a Modern Film SLR (such as the Maxxum 7 I use), AF is extremely good (IMHO). I am seriously wondering if quite a few of you have tried it once, found it hard and never tried it again.

    For me, the most useless function that I have ever seen on a Film SLR is the panaramic function as found on some cheap Minolta's in the mid 90's. Basically, it was a mask that would crop the top and bottom of the frame.

    - Program modes (I know they can be turned off, but wouldn't any camera be better without them? Probably cheaper to manufacture as well.)
    - Data-backs. (I'm stuck with a MF-26 for my F90x)
    - Power wind/rewind
