X200/X100T Replacement

Now the Xpro2 announcement is out of the way, I can see it's an excellent camera, but not for me as a travel/ walkabout camera due to the weight and size of the lenses. So. I'd like to see some of the features and more transferred to the X100T replacement. Specifically I'd like to see:

- 24Mp X-trans sensor. Better IQ and more scope for cropping.
- Updated 23mm f/2 lens to match the sensor.
- Weather Sealing. Essential for a walkabout camera.
- Updated hybrid viewfinder. To match the X-Pro2. Optical zoom to match any add on lenses where appropriate.
- Tilt screen. For better low level/high level/street shooting.
- Proper 49/52mm filter thread not requiring an adapter.
- 21/24mm lens adaptors. Preferably with communication with the body to enable the relevant corrections.
- Macro adaptor to do the same.
- Decent panorama mode that works by pressing and releasing the shutter button. Sometimes I want just a bit wider rather than 120 degrees.
- No bigger!

Obviously fix the current problems such as the EVF/LCD switching, but I'm still hopeful the X100T will get these via a firmware update.

What do you think? Have I missed anything major?
