27 AF points is doable and would be nice. \\with predictive AF, this requires much faster processing chip.

But 24 mpx at 8.5 fps? really? If true (which i doubt), that's REALLY FAST! I wonder how deep the buffer is.

What we've been hearing about the new generation Milbeaut makes these sound not only likely, but necessary because every camera company will be at that level soon.

The processor should support that, and the mechanics can be updated (8.5fps is not that far from 7).

What I'm somewhat worried about is the AF, which must keep the pace. We're talking about a SLR here, not one of the "OK, we'll do 10-12fps but we'll disable everything else: AF, metering, you name it" MILCs. But let's see the product, I'm sure it will be good.
