1st Enthusiast Camera with IBIS, tilting-touch screen, focus peaking in video perfect for MF lenses

I have just passed the 1st anniversary of using interchangeable lens digital cameras (V1, A7, X-A1) and I have collected a hell lot of experience with each of them, and slowly I formulate my expectation for my (near) perfect camera, which should provide the best support for shooting both still photos as well as handheld videos. Panasonic GX7 is nearly perfect since it has everything I need including 2-axis IBIS, but IBIS does not work when recording videos. The three Olympus 5-axis cameras all are near perfect, since they have IBIS during video recording, but no focus peaking during video recording. The Sony A5100 is fine since it will support excellent focus peaking during video, touch-to-magnify tilting screen; but no IBIS. Sony A7S is a bit far from my needs: no touch screen to set focus point in video, no IBIS to support my non-stabilized purely mechanical lenses; even GH4 has touch-screen. Which maker is announcing the first camera with decent IBIS along with focus-peaking during video recording as well as tilting/articulated touch-screen with touch-to-magnify feature?

Sony will license IBIS from Olympus into one of its forthcoming APS-C cameras.

Panasonic will make a successor of GX7 with great IBIS during handheld videos.

Olympus is so close, they simply license Sony's focus-peaking implementation for video.
