I'm not sure how much better a 32MP sensor will be in practice on a APS - C sized sensor. Not many lenses now in existence would cope well. There is a comment about the Nikon D5300 with its 24MP sensor and no AA filter to the effect that this is beyond the requirements of those buying such a camera, let alone their lenses.

I think it more important to fine tune the whole senor, AF, exposure package and the data pipeline. Of possible improvements for a more enthusiast / pro style camera, dual processors and pipe lines would be one way to push the hardware to its limits. You could also through the menu system enable the photographer to fine tune the EVF to whatever level of clarity or incomprehensibility they desire.

If you add in an A7 body, you may be pushing the price up substantially towards that of the A7 itself. However it would be marketed to a rather different type of photographer. And all the required components exist.
