I thought that was a good video, though I will stick with my A7Riv for now. It would be so easy for Sony to make a landscape photographer's dream camera based on the A7Riv without much, if any, added production expense. Just change base ISO to 50,

What is the benefit, compared to base ISO around 100, like it is now?

They could use a denser filter in front of the sensor, and some would say: Yes, finally!

allow 16-bit raw files,

The files are not even 14 bit. What help would it be to store the same data as 16 bit?

add focus bracketing with a way to combine focus

Focus bracketing for landscape is easy to do manual, but an automated feature would be ok.

and exposure bracketing, allow screen to tilt in portrait format like the Panasonic S1, add a timer to bulb shutter mode

They could simply expand the range of exposure values, say, up to five or ten minutes.
