One slot is OK, so long as it is UHS-II, but two slots allow you to copy SD cards in camera while traveling, and the RX10IV is a versatile travel camera.

I've never considered backing up a SD card to another SD card. Doesn't seem to that efficient or economical. I never write the files to both cards on my cameras as the slowest one determines the effective write speed.

Manufacturers were slow to transition to UHS-II. Initially there were stability and compatibility problems. Those seem to be mostly resolved. Probably there's minimal cost in using UHS-II. There is a power increase, but it shouldn't a problem for the RX10.

Adding USB-C would be a plus, allowing faster transfer to a computer without removing/replacing SD cards.

USB-C is simply a connector and cabling spec and doesn't define a protocol. It can support USB 2.0, Display Port, HDMI, VGA and Thunderbolt 3. What we want USB 3.0/3.1. USB 3 doesn't require a Type C connector. Some of my cameras have used USB 3.0 for years through a micro-B connector. But USB-C has other advantages and is quickly becoming the industry standard. Sony's latest Alpha models use Type C connectors and supports USB 3.1 Gen 1.

I'd like to see the lens/sensor IS improved to be competitive with recent Panasonic and Olympus M4/3 cameras. Certainly sensor IS is easier with M4/3 than it is with APS-C or FF, but it should be even easier with 1" sensors.

Sony already has 5-axis IBIS on a FF camera. Shouldn't be a issue if they want to trickle the tech down to their 1" sensor cameras.
