New NEX 7 has a name. What do you want in the 7m?

If I was looking for a new body, here's what I'd like to see:

A 24mp sensor with high-ISO performance competitive with the 5 and 6 series.

Better performance with rangefinder glass. I don't know if this is possible but apparently Leica has a solution?

A mode-dial while maintaining Tri-Navi.

All-metal construction.

Obviously there's a host of other improvements like wifi and PDAF but those four are my big ones. Particularly I feel like if Sony can't solve the first two the biggest challenge the 7 line will face is the 6. 16mp being more than good enough in most situations and given the drawbacks of the current 24mp sensor I can't understand why anyone would pay substantially more money to get all metal construction and one more dial. What do you think?

Sony Alpha NEX-7
