Future RX10 M5 thoughts ...

I am buying the M4 but a couple of features for future M5
1 - Menu navigation by touch on the new touch LCD (a given)
2 - Focus Bracketing: Camera focuses and computes DOF then takes 2 more shots: closer to camera and farther from camera (these incremental focus distances would be calculated via a "user specified %" of the DOF) Or maybe takes 4 or 6  extra shots for "focus stacking" (the M4 claims to shoot 24FPS with inter-frame focusing so the above should be doable)
3 - For Base ISO RAW shooters, an intelligent matrix/multi metering. Surely a camera that can focus on a model's eye can analyze a frame for DR issues and automatically use ETTR by exposing to not clip the whitest "relevant" area (cloud). ie as Illia Bord suggests +3EV over the spot metering of the whitest area. Specular highlights would, or course, be ignored - possibly by user defining how small (in pixels) the specular item must be.

Comments on these crazy idea welcomed (and feel free to add more stuff to the M5)
