12 Potential Improvements for a new Q body.

I realize this has been discussed before, but without discussing EVFs and improved LCD screens, I came up with 12 potential improvements to any new Q that might come out.

I've tried to have ideas that would not add more than $100 to the current price point of the Q-
S1, and would build on the best characteristics of the small sensor Q. I’m assuming the slight tele/macro lens will soon be available. As currently they don't have any telephoto lenses that will AF during Movie Mode hopefully it will also allow for Movie AF.

1) Water/Dust resistant.

2) Enhanced hot-shoe that allows for stereo microphone for video.

3) Increased frame rate from 5 fps to 10 fps.

4) 65mm f2.8 (300 mm) that allows for Movie Auto-Focus.

5) Audible focus confirmation beep (for use with Q to K lens adapter) during Manual Focus.

6) Full tethering support (both wireless(WiFi) and cable) with software.

7) Improved Auto Focus ( SAFOX 12).

8) Improved SR (SRII).

9) Pixel Shift Resolution.

10) Software for hotshoe GPS.

11) Cable shutter release.

12) Ability to turn off the LCD screen during Movie Mode.

Just some thoughts.
