Dear Fuji Manager: My XE-3 wishlist

Dear Fuji Manager

I understand you just laid down your 2014 priorities and determined the budget for your various features, bug fixes, enhancements. Please allow me to throw in a few items in case your product specialists can take into account some of them.

1. Flip out, tilt and swivel screen. My fisheye complaints every time I put it on the floor without looking through it. You did it with the XT-1, you can do it for the XE-3!

2. Touch screen. Your Canon competitors did it with the SL1, time to get on top of them!

3. Steady shutter button. Time for an upgrade since the X100 was released years ago.

4. Mini ISO dial instead of the Fn button on the right. I know you can do it!

5. Large EVF. I know what you're gonna say but hear me out first. Since we are going to have a touch screen based on #2, we no longer need the arrow buttons. So.. you can now move the screen to the right and allow for the EVF to take on some of the current screen real estate. Genius huh ? You guessed right, I hate humps!

6. Flash to stay at the bounce position. Since it allows for it why not do it right ?! If you can increase its power by 1 stop even better.

7. Make it as wide as the X100 - I feel the X100 length is proportionately perfect, plus I have an expensive half leather case I bought for it which I can't wait to put back to a future camera.

8. Large hand-grip! Or at least large and removable for whoever prefers a small one. It can protrude as far as the 27mm, anything less doesn't save space anyway.

That's all I can think for now Mr Manager. I'm sure my friends here in DPReview will add to this list to make it even more complete.
