Yes you could increase the temporary storage capcity of the on-camera buffer & increase the no. of capture frames without any pauses but then the relative slowness of downloading to the external card woud mean a much longer wait before the camera could resume shooting.

I suspect that most users prefer a compromise & would get very frustrated if they had to wait for several minutes before the buffer cleared ?

I think you're right.  However, the buffer doesn't need to clear entirely for the camera to be usable again.

I'd still like a somewhat larger buffer on my NEX-7 (or whatever replaces it).  I'd like to be able to take two or three consecutive bursts of three (bracketed) shots before having to wait for the buffer to clear sufficiently to take another burst of three shots.
