And what, do tell, was your final list of suggested improvements?

That's far too long to list (in fairness most are quite minor). But the most important points are to fix manual focus (which is currently fatally-broken, as the camera doesn't set the lens wide open for MF but instead to any aperture it pleases), and to implement Auto ISO so it doesn't always choose a shutter speed that's too slow to guarantee sharp hand-held images, thus neatly negating the whole point of having it.

Do you expect anything other than E mount enabling in 1.10?

I don't know of any other changes, but I wouldn't rule out other tweaks and improvements being included (as in X100 FW 1.3 for the wide adapter).

It's very encouraging to hear that they are appear to be listening and reacting to to the feedback.

It is indeed - some other companies could learn a lot from this.
