A feature that we would love to have is the AUTO ISO Limit. 

You can set the maximum ISO to somthing like 3200, or 1600, and minimum iso to 200, and set the minimum shutter speed to 320th of a second, and set the aperture to F5.6 for a descent depth of field. 

 

In our application it allows us to be very specific about the bounds that the camera can take shots in, and stop the camera from choosing shutter speeds that are too slow to capture the action, the camera keeps bumping up the ISO automatically until it hits the iso celing. 

 

Details on this feature which is accessible from the cameras menu is as follows:

This feature would be a real bonus for photographers using aperture priotty, for fast action, in rapidly changing conditions, when auto settings are desired, but without worrying about shutter speeds plummeting when it gets dark.
