On a good speculative day, like today, I would wager that Sony introduce the (top of the APS-C line) "A7000" at Photokina!

As an NEX-6 and a A6000 owner, some of the features I think would make the A7000 a slam dunk would include:

Weather sealed body

More "durable" body (just to mollify any potential complainers)

A touchscreen with the ability to touch focus

Better predictive focus in burst mode.

A Bigger buffer for burst mode

Even faster auto-focus

Less sensitive (to body proximity) viewfinder

An electronic level

Lack of banding issues (whether it exists in the A6000 or not).

Ports for an external mic,

A better built in flash

A price Body-Only that did not exceed 1000 USD

What do you think?

For cost wise I would strip it down.

No AF, manual control only, no fancy features, no my sets, no apps, not weather resistant, no mic, no flash, no touch screen and no rear display at all in fact. No electronic level and no video.

Hoping for 36 meg sensor, focus peaking, magnified EVF view, shutter button (yeah well), ISO dial, shutter speed dial, 10 FPS max for 3 seconds. Decent wifi remote.

You know the spooky part, I'm serious, that would be my dream camera from Sony and it ain't going to happen. No wonder Sony won't hire me.

All the best, we are different huh.
