Would you rather have a camera with more features than you need, or a camera with fewer?

Just curious to know what kind of tradeoffs might have been made to yield "superfluous" features. In my development group we used to opine that there was no such thing as a free feature - even if the cost was only in additional support and documentation.

In this case, for instance, if the choice of chipset that enabled 4K recording had the side effect that all video modes caused the same battery drain as recording in 4K 100Mbps IPB format or limited the recording time due to heat dispersion issues, I'd consider that a poor tradeoff.
