Is possible to change the bussiness model?

Just thinking if would be possible to change the bussiness model of the camera market. I think about this since a long time ago and I read on internet something similar for the cell phone market. Instead of having thousands of different models just produce 2 or 3 standard models and let the consumer to choose "optionals" for them. Like it happen with cars.
For example, to offer 3 bodies (fz, lx, and zs) with 1 or 2 combinations of lens and sensors and a list of common optionals for all: gps, wifi, nfc,hot shoe, etc.
I think many users will pay more for a camera that fits better their needs. What do you think?
