Why does Sony not follow these obvious steps to obliterate DLSRs forever?

1) Make a 24 Mpx version of the A7s, meaning quiet vibration-less shutter and good video quality. Doesn't need 4K (nobody can utilize it anyway). Doesn't need ultra high ISO capability (all it needs to do is be as good as a D600 or A7). But come on which serious photographer wants a 12 Mpix camea today? Implementing all of these things should be trivial -- they've already put such a shutter and the software in the A7s which is the same size as the A7.

2) Give it A6000 type AF (beats all <$6k DSLRs AF already). Should be trivial -- they've already done it with the A6000.

3) Team up with Sigma to get best bang/buck ART lenses. Many of them. Sigma says Sony doesn't want to collaborate with them so they're not investing in development efforts yet.

These steps are so glaringly obvious that I can not understand why Sony isn't pushing on these fronts simultaneously. Am I missing something?
