1) I'd like to see the 36MP sensor.

2) Equivalent or better low light performance. Even a 1/3 of a stop would be nice.

3) Much larger sensor coverage with the focus area.

4) A way to lock up the translucent mirror and bypass it. I'm fine if this is a manual focus option only.

5) Improvements in the EVF. The better it gets the more people that will be willing to switch, improving the viability of our system choice.

6) Micro adjustment setting for both ends of a zoom lenses, the camera should average in between focal lengths. Similar to what Canon has.

7) Lenses

Hi - if you are seeking highest quality glass, what lenses are missing? Aren't these all terrific:
ZA 50
70-200 G2
70-400 G2

Nothing specifically, but variety is the spice of life.   Most of the Sony lenses are rehashed Minolta glass, if they put some effort into it I think they could easily improve allot of the stuff they have with todays technology.

Again this is a want just to improve the viability of the a mount.  Glass will always be the most important part of a system.
