Ofcourse, the general compact market has this problem. Yet I’m positive there’s a crowd that would appreciate an EVF, high quality bright 35mm, manual controls, some form of DOF control, all in a slim form factor.

Then again, judging by the comments here I’m in the minority!

I'm afraid so. Sales of compact cameras continue to plummet, as smartphones take over this market:

Compact camera sales have halved in the last two years, continuing a long-term trend.

It's very unlikely that Sony could sell enough of such a niche camera to make it a worthwhile investment. It also overlaps the RX100M5A and smartphones too much.

If Sony ever brings out another compact camera, it'll be one with a long zoom that takes it out of the path of the smartphone steamroller.
