DanceOfLight: A digital equivalent of Pentax LX with all the beautiful manual controls and added digital bits. 24 mm × 36 mm sensor with no AA filter. Keep the mount, throw the mirror out, bring in the EVF and we are done.

- Tripod mount needs to be aligned in the exact center of the lens mount. optional -Add another tripod mount for vertical shooting without clumsy L brackets (645NII/645D come to mind)

- Give me clean pixels instead of Giga pixles any day

- Throw in a few F1.8 leaf shutter primes for silent operation and great flash sync

- Keep the weather sealing and the line of WR lens

- Bring a few decently priced TS lens

result - Happy puppy :)

not bad :) you have some nice points!
