After EM1 and GX7, what should next GH have?

Since there have been some important advances in the new GX7 body vs the GH3, and since the EM1 is rumored to have some type of phase detection ability, too, here is what I would (hope) expect from the GH5 (or perhaps a GH3 refresh?)

1) EVF with same Adobe RGB color gamut as in GX7, and excellent visibility of entire field of view (as VF-4 has).

2) 1/8000 shutter speed

3) Focus peaking as in GX7

4) On chip PDAF capabilities for fast continuous tracking

5) Some type of IBIS for enhanced non-stabilized lens capabilities (the type in the GX7 would be fine; 5 axis would be better (Could you just imagine a GH3 type camera with the Oly 5 axis in video? That would be a HUGE deal.)

6) Some processing engine tweaks for slightly better red rendition

7) (I know people will be divided on this one) Slightly smaller body....just slightly....maybe just lower the top shoulders a bit and cut a couple of ounces out of the weight...perfect.

THAT would be my personal ideal M43.

What do YOU think?
