Are Today's Digital SLRs Too Complicated & Too Fully Featured - For You?

I don't know about you, but I only use a few of the features on my digital SLRs - Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 7D.

In fact, the settings/features I use for most of my still pictures are:
• Aperture or shutter priority mode.
• Exposure compensation.
• Center AF focus point or other AF focus spot.
• Evaluative metering mode.
• One shot.
• Highlight alert on.
• RGB histogram displayed.
• White balance set to the lighting conditions.
• ISO 100 - 400.

I rarely go into the Custom Functions – although I am glad they are there when I need them.

So I was thinking: Do you think digital SLRs are too complicated and too fully featured for most photographers - and that includes you? Would you like to see a more basic digital SLR?
