No HD camera mode. If I wanted HD video, I'd get a camcorder.
Better focusing definitely
If you don't like the HD video mode then don't use it PERIOD. No one makes you and the price didn't go up when they added it so stop complaining about extra features you don't use. Thats like saying I don't want auto white balance, I don't like it or think it is needed so I just don't use it. Bottom line don't be a snob acting like it hurts a "photo" camera to shoot video, get on board and benefit from what it does really well or cough up more money and buy the EOS 1Ds instead.
