The news of the Sony RX1 got me thinking...If you could frankenstein your own camera given the current technologies available today and throw it into one package, how would you design it and what would you put in it.

This is what I would choose:

Design:

Small full frame 35mm interchangeable lens camera similar to the size of the RX1

Hyprid Optical/Electrical / viewfinder similar to the x pro1 in the upper left corner of the camera, possibly adding only half inch of height to the body. tilting LED small enough screen to allow space for the optical viewfinder.
Manual dials for shutter and aperture ring on lens No onboard flash
Only S,A,P, and M modes with Movie hot shoe and fully fledged flash system
Simple, clean no frills design. Optional grip for larger hands.
focus peaking activated by moving focus ring

Sensor: 39megapixel full-frame 35mm (like NikonD800) using the the fuji x-trans array (like fuji X-Pro1) allowing a bare sensor without the anti-aliasing filter. SUPER TACK SHARP IMAGES

Shutter: Leaf Shutter similar to the RX! allowing flash sync speeds up to 1/2000th allowing much better use of portable flashes in sunlight. Yeah baby!

Ziess Prime Lenses: 12mm f/5.6, 24mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2, 55mm 1.8, 85mm 1.8
All lenses have autofocus and mechanical manual focus coupling

Adaptor to use M mount leica and voightlander lenses. Flawless aperture priority function and focus peaking with use of these lenses.

This camera would be a BAD MOFO. Would anyone like to see this? What would be your design?
