fuji x10 firmware most wanted

I bought this great camera and I'm very happy with it. I owned the sony hx5v (I was quite disappointed by its slow operation and imprecise zoom), I tryed Oly xz1 (good but not great when over 400iso, slow) and sony nex 5n (too big)...

Fuji x10 is special: clever exr sensor, manual zoom, very usable viewfinder, bright lens, good macro, good controls, nice handling, cool on/off, incredible IQ (similar if not better than slr + kit zoom), fast operation, good overall construction.
My only disappointings are:

  • very poor battery (c'mon, body is not so little...)

  • fixed mediocre screen

  • no 40mm filters (really don't want 52mm!)

  • orbs orbs orbs

  • AF is fast but sometimes fails

  • Custom 1 and 2 modes are poor of settings

I think that the last 3 problems can be solved by an improved firmware: my feeling is that the x10 is 0.9 and not 1.0.

I'd like to know by other people/owners if there are other aspects, bugs, problems that can be fixed, solved, improved.
A sort of wish list for Fujifilm...
Sorry for my school-English.
