David, This is your lucky day. Check out the new Fujifilm X-T1. It has the sensor with DR and noise as good as Sony's, actually the sensor is made by Sony but Fuji added its own color filter. The EVF is fast responding and even larger than the VF on 1DX. It has 8fps continues AF and is said to have the fastest (that still needs to be verified) AF of all cameras. Oh I forgot to mention the Fuji lens selection will make a Canon aps-c shooter cry. Have you ever dreamed of L quality, or better, fast aps-c primes costing less than half of what Canon would charge you?

Fuji, or somebody else needs to put an IBIS in their mirrorless bodies for a really capable system. Right now, the m43 has this advantage but it has a smaller sensor and the 4:3 ratio.

It seems strange that Sony seems to have all but deserted that technology in their latest offerings. I find that surprising after all the hoopla they put up over it in the beginning ("our images are still but our competition is shaking", etc.) not to mention all the fanboy activity over it. The big detraction was the lack of a stabilized VF which isn't the case in their newer cameras.

IBIS is really not a must have for me. However I'm also at lost to explain why the companies don't want to add it in the camera even if it means they might sell a few cameras with it. The cynical explanation is they could sell more IS with each lenses but I don't think that's the reason. The unstabilized VF wouldn't be a problem for EVF os that should not be the reason either. My best guess is there are still some technical challenges to match the performance of the in lens IS for these larger sensors.

I think in the CaNikon case it is that they have something else that they thinks works just fine and they would rather spend their R&D $ somewhere else.  In the Sony case I am at a loss does it take too much power that they need for the EVF?, does it increase the size?, what.  It is not something that I am drooling over either, what I have works just fine.  I think that the issue is a technical one of some sort.  I wonder if it hurts the video in some way (the thing shaking around when the scanning occurs for example).
